5.

The purpose of Flight Test Ground and Mobile Stations is to communicate with properly licensed Aircraft Stations. Coordination requests for Flight Test Ground or Mobile Stations must include either the call sign of an Aircraft Station authorized for the same frequency(ies) or a coordination request for the appropriate Aircraft Station

6.

All requests for frequency coordination by Aerospace & Flight Test Radio Council (“AFTRCC”) are subject to the following terms and conditions:

AFTRCC provides recommendations to the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) for non-Government use of flight test voice and telemetry frequencies. AFTRCC’s role is strictly advisory; in all cases the FCC makes the decision whether to issue a license.

Applicants are advised that no representations or warranties, express or implied, are made as to the interference-free nature of any given frequency or frequencies which AFTRCC coordinates, or as to whether any given frequency recommendation is best suited for the Applicant’s purposes.

Applicants should also be aware that frequencies coordinated by AFTRCC are shared with other users; no one user is entitled to exclusive use of a frequency in any given area. Multiple users may be, and often are, licensed or have government assignments for use of the same frequencies. Hence, notwithstanding any FCC issuance of a license to the Applicant, transmission on any given frequency may be subject to day-to-day, hour-by-hour scheduling with Government Area Frequency Coordinators (“AFCs”) or other agencies.

In return for AFTRCC’s processing of the Applicant’s request, the Applicant agrees to release and hold harmless AFTRCC, its officers, directors, agents, representatives, and member companies (and their respective officers, directors, employees, owners, and agents) from and against any and all claims, losses, liabilities, damages or expenses which may arise now or in the future as a result of the Applicant’s acceptance of AFTRCC’s recommendation, or its use of the recommended frequency(ies)
