$ 21.513 Location of message center.
Within the service area encompassed by the field strength contour of each base station as defined in $ 21.504, there shall be at least one message center so located that the major portion of subscribers' local exchange landline telephone calls, which originate or terminate in such area in conjunction with messages transmitted or received by said station, cost no more per call than the local message single unit rate. In cases where the control point of a base station is not so located, a public foreign exchange telephone circuit shall be provided to afford service so that a radio service subscriber may communicate between such points at a cost per call not in excess of the local message single unit rate. 21.514 Responsibility for operational
control and maintenance of mobile
units. (a) The licensee of a base station in this service shall be responsible for exercising effective operational control over all mobile units with which it communicates. The proper installation and maintenance of such mobile units shall be the responsibility of the respective licensees thereof.
(b) A mobile unit normally associated with and licensed to a specified base station will be deemed, when communicating with a different base station pursuant to legally effective tariff provisions, to be temporarily associated with and licensed to such different base station and the licensee of such different base station shall, for such temporary period, assume the same licensee responsibility for such mobile unit as if such unit were regularly licensed to it. $ 21.515 Control points, dispatch points
and dispatch stations. (a) Dispatch stations, other than those installed pursuant to § 21.519(a), may be installed only with specific authorization from the Commission. Upon removal of a specifically licensed dispatch station, the licensee must within 30 days thereafter submit to the Commission in Washington, D.C., the dispatch station license for cancellation. Dispatch points may be installed or removed without authorization. Dispatch point circuit facilities shall be installed in conformance with the requirements of paragraph (c) (2) of this section.
(b) To insure the maintenance of station control, means shall be provided
whereby each dispatch station and each dispatch point is maintained under continuous effective operational supervision of one or more control points.
(c) At each control point for a base station or fixed station in this service, the following facilities will be installed:
(1) Equipment to permit the responsible radio operator to monitor aurally, at such intervals as may be necessary to insure proper operation of the integrated communication system, all transmissions originating at dispatch points under his supervision and at stations with which the base station communicates.
(2) Facilities which will permit the responsible radio operator either to disconnect immediately the dispatch point circuits from the transmitter or immediately to render the transmitter inoperative from any dispatch point associated therewith.
NOTE: Reference should made to $ $ 21.118 and 21.518 for additional control point requirements and also to $ 21.205 concerning operator requirements. [28 F.R. 13002, Dec. 5, 1963, as amended at 29 F.R. 11362, Aug. 6, 1964] § 21.516 Additional showing required

additional channel. An application requesting the assignment of an additional channel at an existing Domestic Public Land Mobile radio station (other than control, dispatch or repeater), in addition to the information required by other sections of the rules, shall include a showing of the following:
(a) The number of mobile units for which orders for service are being held.
(b) Data showing the actual traffic loading on each channel assignment of the present radio system during the busiest 12 hour periods on three days (within a seven day period) having normal message traffic not more than 30 days prior to the date of filing. This information should be reported separately for each of the three days selected, which should be identified by dates, and should disclose the following:
(1) The number of mobile units using the service during each of the days specified.
(2) The number of calls completed each hour.
(3) For systems that provide message relay service, (i) the number of calls held, (ii) the total holding time, and (iii) the maximum holding time for a
