ception on Channels 4 and 5.

(3) The applicant agrees to eliminate any harmful interference caused by his operation to TV reception on either Channel 4 or 5 that might develop by whatever means are found necessary within 90 days of the time knowledge of said interference is first brought to his attention by the Commission. If said interference is not cleared up within the 90-day period, operation of the fixed station will be discontinuod.

(4) Vertical polarization is used.

(5) Whenever it is proposed to locate a 72–76 Mc/s fixed station less than 80, but more than 10 miles from the site of a TV transmitter operating on either Channel 4 or 5, or from the post office of a community in which such channels are assigned but are not in operation, the fixed station shall be authorized only if there are fewer than 100 family dwelling units, as defined by the U.S. Bureau of Census, located within a circle centered at the location of the proposed fixed station (family dwelling units 70 or more miles distant from the TV antenna site are not to be counted), the radius of which shall be determined by use of the appropriate chart entitled, "Chart for Determining Radius From Fixed Station in 72–76 Mc/s Band to Interference Contour Along Which 10 Percent of Service From Adjacent Channel Television Station Would Be Destroyed"; two charts are provided, one for Channel 4 and one for Channel 5. The Commission may, however, in a particular case, authorize the location of a fixed station within a circle as determined above containing 100 or more family dwelling units upon a showing that:

(i) The proposed site is the only suitable location.

(ii) It is not feasible, technically or otherwise, to use other available frequencies.

(iii) The applicant has a plan to control any interference that might develop to TV reception from his operations.

(iv) The applicant is financially able and agrees to make such adjustments in the TV receivers affected as may be necessary to eliminate interference caused 'by his operations.

(6) All applications seeking authority to operate with a separation of less than 10 miles will be returned without action.

(b) The frequencies listed in the table in this paragraph may be assigned for operational fixed microwave operation subject to the conditions set forth in paragraph (d) of this section and the limitations contained in the footnotes to the table.
