  §  90.429   Control point and dispatch point requirements.

   (a) Control point required. Unless permitted to be operated on an
   unattended basis, each station shall be provided with a control point;

   (b) A control point is an operating position:

   (1) Which must be under the control and supervision of the licensee;

   (2) Where a person immediately responsible for the operation of the
   transmitter is stationed;

   (3) Where the monitoring facilities required by this part are
   installed.

   (c) Control point location. The location of the control point will be
   specified in the station license and will be assumed to be the same as
   that of the transmitting equipment unless an application for a
   different location has been approved by the Commission.

   (d) Control point facilities required. At each control point, the
   following facilities shall be installed:

   (1) A carrier-operated device which will provide continuous visual
   indication when the transmitter is radiating, or, a pilot lamp or meter
   which will provide continuous visual indication when the transmitter
   circuits have been placed in a condition to produce radiation. The
   provisions of this subparagraph shall not apply to hand-carried
   transmitters or transmitters installed on motorcycles. The control
   point for a transmitter utilized to activate another radio station may
   employ a single pilot lamp or meter as an indication of the activation
   of local and remote transmitters.

   (2) Facilities which will permit the person responsible for the
   operation of the transmitter either to disconnect the dispatch point
   circuits from the transmitter or to render the transmitter inoperative
   from any dispatch point under his supervision; and

   (3) Facilities which will permit the person responsible for the
   operation of the transmitter to turn the transmitter carrier on and off
   at will.

   (e) Dispatch point. A dispatch point is any position from which
   messages may be transmitted under the supervision of the person at a
   control point who is responsible for the operation of the transmitter.
   Dispatch points may be installed without authorization from the
   Commission.
