within its service area or causes harmful interference to another
218-219 MHz Service system, the licensees of both systems must
cooperate and resolve the problem by mutually satisfactory
arrangements. If the licensees are unable to do so, the Commission may
impose restrictions including, but not limited to, specifying the
transmitter power, antenna height or area, duty cycle, or hours of

geographical location may be denied when, in the judgment of the
Commission, its use in that location is not in the public interest; the

eliminate harmful interference to television broadcasting and
reception, from its component CTSs and RTSs, within 30 days of the time
it is notified in writing, by either an affected television station, an
affected viewer, or the Commission, of an interference complaint.
