§ 74.582 Station identification.
(a) Each aural broadcast STL or intercity relay station, when
transmitting program material or information shall transmit station
identification at the beginning and end of each period of operation,
and hourly, as close to the hour as feasible, at a natural break in
program offerings by one of the following means:
(1) Transmission of its own call sign by aural means or by automatic
transmission of international Morse telegraphy.
(2) Aural transmission of the call sign of the radio broadcast station
with which it is licensed as an STL or intercity relay station.
(3) Aural transmission of the call sign of the radio broadcast station
whose signals are being relayed, or, when programs are obtained
directly from network lines and relayed, the network identification.
(b) Station identification transmissions during operation need not be
made when to make such transmission would interrupt a single
consecutive speech, play, religious service, symphony concert, or other
such productions. In such cases, the identification transmission shall
be made at the first interruption of the entertainment continuity and
at the conclusion thereof.
(c) Where more than one aural broadcast STL or intercity relay station
is employed in an integrated relay system, the station at the point of
origination may originate the transmission of the call signs of all of
the stations in the relay system.
(d) Aural broadcast microwave booster stations will be assigned
individual call signs. However, station identification will be
accomplished by the retransmission of identification as provided in
paragraph (a) of this section.
(e) Voice transmissions shall normally be employed for station
identification. However, other methods of station identification may be
permitted or required by the Commission.
