  §  74.461   Transmitter power.

   (a) Transmitter power is the power at the transmitter output terminals
   and delivered to the antenna, antenna transmission line, or any other
   impedance-matched, radio frequency load. For the purpose of this
   Subpart, the transmitter power is the carrier power.

   (b) The authorized transmitter power for a remote pickup broadcast
   station shall be limited to that necessary for satisfactory service
   and, in any event, shall not be greater than 100 watts, except that a
   station to be operated aboard an aircraft shall normally be limited to
   a maximum authorized power of 15 watts. Specific authorization to
   operate stations on board aircraft with an output power exceeding 15
   watts will be issued only upon an adequate engineering showing of need,
   and of the procedures that will be taken to avoid harmful interference
   to other licensees.

   (Sec. 5, 48 Stat. 1068; 47 U.S.C. 155)
