   (a) Special temporary authority may be granted for TV broadcast
   auxiliary 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

   television broadcast auxiliary station must be made in accordance with
   the procedures of § 1.931(b) of this chapter.

   television 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 authority shall specify a channel
   or channels consistent with the provisions of § 74.602: Provided, That
   in the case of events of wide-spread 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:
   And provided further, That in no case will a television auxiliary
   broadcast operation be authorized on frequencies employed for the
   safety of life and 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 authority to permit operation of a TV auxiliary
   broadcast station of any class pending FCC action on an application for
   regular authority will not normally be granted.
