(b) Any manufacturer of a transmitter to be used in this service may
apply for certification for such transmitter following the

pursuant to an application accepted for filing prior to December 1,

assignees: Provided, however, If operation of such equipment causes
harmful interference due to its failure to comply with the technical
standards set forth in this subpart, the Commission may, at its
discretion, require the licensee to take such corrective action as is
necessary to eliminate the interference.
(f) Each instrument of authority which permits operation of a remote
pickup broadcast station or system using equipment which has not been
certificated will specify the particular transmitting equipment which
the licensee is authorized to use.
