§ 22.813 Technical channel pair assignment criteria.
The rules in this section establish technical assignment criteria for
the channel pairs listed in § 22.805. These criteria are intended to
provide substantial service volumes over areas that have significant
local and regional general aviation activity, while maintaining the
continuous nationwide in-route coverage of the original geographical
(a) Distance separation for co-channel ground stations. The FCC may
grant an application requesting assignment of a communication channel
pair to a proposed ground transmitter only if the proposed antenna
location is at least 800 kilometers (497 miles) from the antenna
location of the nearest co-channel ground transmitter in the United
States, its territories and possessions; and 1000 kilometers (621
miles) from the antenna location of the nearest co-channel ground
transmitter in Canada.
(b) Dispersion. The FCC may grant an application requesting assignment
of a communication channel pair to a proposed ground transmitter only
if there are no more than five different communication channel pairs
already assigned to ground transmitters with antenna locations within a
320 kilometer (199 mile) radius of the proposed antenna location.
