1459.95 * Pending promulgation of rules and regulations to govern the public air-ground radiotelephone service, and subject to further Order of the Commission, frequencies in the 454.675–455.000 Mc/8 and 459.675-460.000 MC/8 bands are not available for operation of new radio facilities in the Domestic Public Land Mobile Radio Service. In the interim, the authorizations of stations using such frequencies may be renewed, subject to Commission determination relative to use of such frequencies by the public air-ground radiotelephone service.

43.22 Mc/s 35.58 Mc/s
43.58 Mc/s (1) Wherever feasible, the frequencies 35.22 Mc/s and 35.58 MC/s shall be assigned for use in any area prior to the assignment of the frequencies 43.22 Mc/s and 43.58 MC/S.
(2) If an applicant for authoriza'ion to provide an exclusive one-way signaling service provides, or proposes also to provide, General or Dispatch service in accordance with paragraphs (a), (b) and (c) of this section, the application for a one-way facility should be supported with full information to show why the proposed signaling service could not be provided in connection with the base station facilities used for such General or Dispatch service.
(e) On a shared basis with other common carrier fixed, international control and operational fixed radio services, frequencies in the band 2110-2200 Mc/s may be authorized for use by control and repeater stations functioning in conjunction with the Domestic Public Land Mobile Radio Service on the condition that the emission bandwidth is limited to the minimum necessary to serve the purpose

NOTE: The provisions of subparagraphs (1) and (2) of this paragraph may be waived by the Commission upon a factual showing, supported by such engineering proof as may be necessary, that all of the currently assignable pairs of 152–162 MC/8 band frequencles listed in paragraph (c) of this section are not assigned or applied for within interference range of existing or possible station assignments within the urbanized area having a population of over 300,000 and, upon a satisfactory showing, that in such area over a substantial period of years the growth of the public land mobile radio seryice has not been hampered and is not likely to be hampered by a shortage of frequencies allocated to such service in the 152 to 162 Mc/8 band. Facilities authorized under the provisions of such waivers shall be on a secondary basis and subject to the condition that, in the event the frequencies are required for assignment to base and mobile stations in the area, operation thereon shall be terminated within 60 days after notice 18 received from the Commission. [28 F.R. 13002, Dec. 5, 1963, as amended at 29 F.R. 2700, Feb. 26, 1964) 8 21.502 Classification of base stations.
Base stations of miscellaneous common carriers in the Domestic Public Land Mobile Radio Service shall be classified, as set forth below, according to their transmitting antenna height above average terrain, and according to their effective radiated power in the horizontal plane of the antenna.
In any particular case, where it appears that unusual radio wave propagation conditions are involved, the Commission may require greater separation than indicated in the above table, or make assignments at lesser station spacing. Reference may be made to $ 73.611(d) of this chapter, Radio Broadcast Services, for methods of computing milage separation between station locations. § 21.504 Service area of base station.
(a) The limits of reliable service area of a base station are considered to be described by a field strength contour of 37 decibels above one microvolt per meter for stations engaged in two-way communication service with mobile stations and 43 decibels above one microvolt per meter for stations engaged in one-way signaling service. Service within that area is generally expected to have an average reliability of not less than 90 percent.
(b) The field strength contours described in paragraph (a) of this section shall be regarded as determining the limits of the reliable service area of the related base stations for the purpose of providing protection to such stations from co-channel electrical harmful interference and defining the area within which consideration will be accorded claims of economic competitive injury. 8 21.505 Antenna height-power limit

In view of the fact that the predominant need for mobile communication service can usually be met by base stations within the classification set forth in § 21.502, and because widespread coverage is undesirable in areas where no substantial need exists for mobile communication service through a distant
