Radio Systems Committee (NRSC) and television stations may use
subsidiary communications services.
(b) Other technologies and public service providers, such as low earth
orbiting satellites, that wish to participate in the EAS may contact
the FCC's Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau or their State
Emergency Communications Committee for information and guidance.
