  §  87.305   Frequency coordination.

   (a)(1) Each application for a new station license, renewal or
   modification of an existing license concerning flight test frequencies,
   except as provided in paragraph (b) of this section, must be
   accompanied by a statement from a frequency advisory committee. The
   committee must comment on the frequencies requested or the proposed
   changes in the authorized station and the probable interference to
   existing stations. The committee must consider all stations operating
   on the frequencies requested or assigned within 320 km (200 mi) of the
   proposed area of operation and all prior coordinations and assignments
   on the proposed frequency(ies). The committee must also recommend
   frequencies resulting in the minimum interference. The committee must
   coordinate in writing all requests for frequencies or proposed
   operating changes in the 1435-1525 MHz, 2345-2360 MHz (only until
   January 1, 2020), 2360-2395 MHz, and 5091-5150 MHz bands with the
   responsible Government Area Frequency Coordinators listed in the NTIA
   “Manual of Regulations and Procedures for Federal Radio Frequency
   Management.” In addition, committee recommendations may include
   comments on other technical factors and may contain recommended
   restrictions which it believes should appear on the license.

   (2) The frequency advisory committee must be organized to represent all
   persons who are eligible for non-Government radio flight test stations.
   A statement of organization service area and composition of the
   committee must be submitted to the Commission for approval. The
   functions of any advisory committee are purely advisory to the
   applicant and the Commission, and its recommendations are not binding
   upon either the applicant or the Commission.

   (b) These applications need not be accompanied by evidence of frequency

   (1) Any application for modification not involving change in
   frequency(ies), power, emission, antenna height, antenna location or
   area of operation.

   (2) Any application for 121.5 MHz.
