§ 11.42 Participation by communications common carriers.
(a) During activation of the National level EAS, communications common
carriers which have facilities available in place may, without charge,
(1) An originating source from the nearest service area to a selected
Test Center and then to the EAS Participant for the duration of the
emergency, provided an Emergency Action Notification is issued by the
White House and the originating source has a local channel from the
originating point to the nearest service area.
(2) An independent broadcast station to the radio and television
broadcast networks and any other EAS Participant provided the station
has in service a local channel from the station's studio or transmitter
directly to the broadcast source.
(b) Upon receipt of the Emergency Action Termination, the common
carriers shall disconnect the originating source and the participating
independent stations and restore the networks and other EAS
Participants to their original configurations.
(c) During a National level EAS Test, common carriers which have
facilities in place may, without charge, connect an originating source
from the nearest exchange to a selected Test Center and then to any EAS
Participant. Independent stations will not be connected during the test
unless authorized by the FCC. Upon test termination, EAS Participants
shall be restored to their original configurations.
(d) A common carrier rendering free service shall file with the FCC, on
or before July 31st and January 31st of each year, reports covering the
six months ending on June 30th and December 31st respectively. These
reports shall state what free service was rendered under this rule and
the charges in dollars which would have accrued to the carrier for this
service if charges had been collected at the published tariff rates if
such carriers are required to file tariffs.
