§ 95.206 (R/C Rule 6) Are there any special restrictions on the location of
my R/C station?
(a) If your R/C station is located on premises controlled by the
Department of Defense, you may be required to comply with additional
regulations imposed by the commanding officer of the installation.
(b) If your R/C station will be constructed on an environmental
sensitive site, or will be operated in such a manner as to raise
environmental problems, under § 1.1307 of this chapter, you must
provide an environmental assessment, as set forth in § 1.1311 of this
chapter, and undergo environmental review § 1.1312 of this chapter,
before commencement of construction.
(c) Anyone intending to operate an R/C station on the islands of Puerto
Rico, Desecheo, Mona, Vieques, and Culebra in a manner that could pose
an interference threat to the Arecibo Observatory shall notify the
Interference Office, Arecibo Observatory, HC3 Box 53995, Arecibo,
Puerto Rico 00612, in writing or electronically, of the location of the
unit. Operators may wish to consult interference guidelines, which will

(1) The notification to the Interference Office, Arecibo Observatory
shall be made 45 days prior to commencing operation of the unit. The
notification shall state the geographical coordinates of the unit.
(2) After receipt of such notifications, the Commission will allow the
Arecibo Observatory a period of 20 days for comments or objections. The
operator will be required to make reasonable efforts in order to
resolve or mitigate any potential interference problem with the Arecibo
Observatory. If the Commission determines that an operator has
satisfied its responsibility to make reasonable efforts to protect the
Observatory from interference, the unit may be allowed to operate.
