  §  87.1   Basis and purpose.

   This section contains the statutory basis and provides the purpose for
   which this part is issued.

   (a) Basis. The rules for the aviation services in this part are
   promulgated under the provisions of the Communications Act of 1934, as
   amended, which vests authority in the Federal Communications Commission
   (Commission) to regulate radio transmission and to issue licenses for
   radio stations. These rules conform with applicable statutes and
   international treaties, agreements and recommendations to which the
   United States is a party. The most significant of these documents are
   listed with the short title appearing in parentheses:

   (1) Communications Act of 1934, as amended—(Communications Act).

   (2) International Telecommunication Union Radio Regulations, in force
   for the United States—(Radio Regulations).

   (3) The Convention on International Civil Aviation—(ICAO Convention).

   (b) Purpose. This part states the conditions under which radio stations
   may be licensed and used in the aviation services. These rules do not
   govern U.S. Government radio stations.
