  §  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
   74.15.
