  §  74.537   Temporary authorizations.

   (a) Special temporary authority may be granted for aural broadcast STL
   or intercity relay station operation which cannot be conducted in
   accordance with § 74.24. Such authority will normally be granted only
   for operations of a temporary nature. Where operation is seen as likely
   on a continuing annual basis, an application for a regular
   authorization should be submitted.

   (b) A request for special temporary authority for the operation of an
   aural broadcast STL or an intercity relay station must be made in
   accordance with the procedures of § 1.931(b) of this chapter.

   (c) All requests for special temporary authority of an aural broadcast
   auxiliary stations must include full particulars including: licensee's
   name and address, facility identification number of the associated
   broadcast station(s), call letters of the aural broadcast STL or
   intercity relay station, if assigned, type and manufacturer of
   equipment, effective isotropic radiated power, emission, frequency or
   frequencies proposed for use, commencement and termination date and
   location of the proposed operation, and purpose for which request is
   made including any particular justification.

   (d) A request for special temporary authorization shall specify a
   frequency or frequencies consistent with the provisions of § 74.502.
   However, in the case of events of widespread interest and importance
   which cannot be transmitted successfully on these frequencies,
   frequencies assigned to other services may be requested upon a showing
   that operation thereon will not cause interference to established
   stations. In no case will operation of an aural broadcast STL or
   intercity relay station be authorized on frequencies employed for the
   safety of life or property.

   (e) When the transmitting equipment utilized is not licensed to the
   user, the user shall nevertheless have full control over the use of the
   equipment during the period it is operated.

   (f) Special temporary authorization to permit operation of aural
   broadcast STL or intercity relay stations or systems pending FCC action
   on an application for regular authority will normally not be granted.
