  §  25.120   Application for special temporary authorization.

   (a) In circumstances requiring immediate or temporary use of
   facilities, request may be made for special temporary authority to
   install and/or operate new or modified equipment. The request must
   contain the full particulars of the proposed operation including all
   facts sufficient to justify the temporary authority sought and the
   public interest therein. No request for temporary authority will be
   considered unless it is received by the Commission at least 3 working
   days prior to the date of proposed construction or operation or, where
   an extension is sought, the expiration date of the existing temporary
   authorization. A request received within less than 3 working days may
   be accepted only upon due showing of extraordinary reasons for the
   delay in submitting the request which could not have been earlier
   foreseen by the applicant. A copy of the request for special temporary
   authority also shall be forwarded to the Commission's Columbia
   Operations Center, 9200 Farm House Lane, Columbia, MD 21046-1609.

   (b)(1) The Commission may grant a temporary authorization only upon a
   finding that there are extraordinary circumstances requiring temporary
   operations in the public interest and that delay in the institution of
   these temporary operations would seriously prejudice the public
   interest. Convenience to the applicant, such as marketing
   considerations or meeting scheduled customer in-service dates, will not
   be deemed sufficient for this purpose.

   (2) The Commission may grant a temporary authorization for a period not
   to exceed 180 days, with additional periods not exceeding 180 days, if
   the Commission has placed the special temporary authority (STA) request
   on public notice.

   (3) The Commission may grant a temporary authorization for a period not
   to exceed 60 days, if the STA request has not been placed on public
   notice, and the applicant plans to file a request for regular authority
   for the service.

   (4) The Commission may grant a temporary authorization for a period not
   to exceed 30 days, if the STA request has not been placed on public
   notice, and an application for regular authority is not contemplated.

   (c) Each application proposing construction of one or more earth
   station antennas or alteration of the overall height of one or more
   existing earth station antenna structures, where FAA notification prior
   to such construction or alteration is required by part 17 of this
   chapter, must include the FCC Antenna Structure Registration Number(s)
   for the affected satellite earth station antenna(s). If no such number
   has been assigned at the time the application(s) is filed, the
   applicant must state in the application whether the satellite earth
   station antenna owner has notified the FAA of the proposed construction
   or alteration and applied to the FCC for an Antenna Structure
   Registration Number in accordance with part 17 of this chapter.
   Applications proposing construction of one or more earth station
   antennas or alteration of the overall height of one or more existing
   earth station antennas, where FAA notification prior to such
   construction or alteration is not required by part 17 of this chapter,
   must indicate such and, unless the satellite earth station antenna is
   6.10 meters or less above ground level (AGL), must contain a statement
   explaining why FAA notification is not required.
