and operated only in accordance with the rules applicable to their
particular service as set forth in this title and with a valid
authorization granted by the Commission under the provisions of this
part, except as specified in paragraph (b) of this section.
(b) Restrictions. The holding of an authorization does not create any
rights beyond the terms, conditions and period specified in the
authorization. Authorizations may be granted upon proper application,
provided that the Commission finds that the applicant is qualified in
regard to citizenship, character, financial, technical and other
criteria, and that the public interest, convenience and necessity will
be served. See § § 301, 308, and 309, 310 of this chapter.

subscribers for individual mobile or fixed station authorizations in
the Wireless Radio Services. Individual authorizations are required to
