§ 90.461 Direct and remote control of transmitters.
(a) In general. Radio transmitters may be operated and controlled
directly (as when the operating position for the transmitter and the
transmitter being operated are at the same location), or remotely (as
when the transmitter being operated and the position from which it is
being operated are at different locations).
(b) Control of transmitters at remote locations. Radio transmitters at
remote locations may be operated and controlled through the use of wire
line or radio links; or through dial-up circuits, as provided in
paragraph (c) of this section. Such control links or circuits may be
either those of the licensee or they may be provided by common carriers
authorized by law to furnish such service.
(c) Dial-up circuits. Dial-up circuits may be provided by wire line
telephone companies under appropriate tariffs, and they may be used by
licensees for purposes of transmitter control, provided:
(1) The dial-up circuits serve only to link licensed transmitter
control points and the transmitters being controlled.
(2) The dial-up circuits are so designed that the transmitters being
controlled cannot be operated from any fixed position other than the
licensed control points for those transmitters.
(3) Equipment used to provide the transmitter/dial-up-circuit interface
is designed to preclude associated mobile units of the licensee from
reaching any point(s) served by the wire line telephone facilities
other than the control point(s) of the station(s) controlled.
(4) Any direct electrical connection to the telephone network shall
comply with applicable tariffs and with part 68 of the Commission's
Rules (See § 90.5(j)).
(5) Interconnection, within the meaning of § § 90.7 and 90.477 through
90.483, may not take place at a control point which connects to its
associated transmitter(s) through dial-up circuits; nor may such
dial-up transmitter control circuits be used in conjunction with (or
shared by) interconnection equipment.
