Revisions of frequency allocation tables, changes in equipment

In those few cases, the developmental allocation is normally
authorized for concept development purposes only.
e. Among the requirements for granting an operational frequency
(1) Completion and submission of a DD Form 1494.
(2) Conformance of the technical

(3) Assurance of tuning flexibility and frequency
within the appropriate allocated band of frequencies.
(4) Design of the equipment to comply with
