§ 73.3516 Specification of facilities.
(a) An application for facilities in the AM, FM, TV or Class A TV
broadcast services, or low power TV service shall be limited to one
frequency, or channel, and no application will be accepted for filing
if it requests an alternate frequency or channel. Applications
specifying split frequency AM operations using one frequency during
daytime hours complemented by a different frequency during nighttime
hours will not be accepted for filing.
(b) An application for facilities in the experimental and auxiliary
broadcast services may request the assignment of more than one
frequency if consistent with applicable rules in Part 74. Such
applications must specify the frequency or frequencies requested and
may not request alternate frequencies.
(c) An application for a construction permit for a new broadcast
station, the facilities for which are specified in an outstanding
construction permit or license, will not be accepted for filing.
(d) An application for facilities in the International broadcast
service may be filed without a request for specific frequency, as the
FCC will assign frequencies from time to time in accordance with
§ § 73.702 and 73.711.
(e) An application for construction permit for a new broadcast station
or for modification of construction permit or license of a previously
authorized broadcast station will not be accepted for filing if it is
mutually exclusive with an application for renewal of license of an
existing broadcast station unless the application for renewal of
license is filed on or before May 1, 1995 and unless the mutually
exclusive construction permit application is tendered for filing by the
end of the first day of the last full calendar month of the expiring
license term. A petition to deny an application for renewal of license
of an existing broadcast station will be considered as timely filed if
it is tendered for filing by the end of the first day of the last full
calendar month of the expiring license term.
(1) If the license renewal application is not timely filed as
prescribed in § 73.3539, the deadline for filing petitions to deny
thereto is the 90th day after the FCC gives public notice that it has
accepted the late-filed renewal application for filing. In the case of
a renewal application filed on or before May 1, 1995, if the license
renewal application is not timely filed as prescribed in § 73.3539, the
deadline for filing applications mutually exclusive therewith is the
90th day after the FCC gives public notice that it has accepted the
late-filed renewal application for filing.
(2) If any deadline falls on a nonbusiness day, the cutoff shall be the
close of business of the first full business day thereafter.
(3) The dates when the licenses of all broadcast and broadcast
auxiliary services regularly expire are listed in § § 73.733, 73.1020 and
