Local Television Transmission Service

 
Local Television Transmission Service (LTTS) stations are available for communications common carriers to provide service to television broadcast stations, network entities, cable system operators and cable network entities. Fixed point-to-point, temporary fixed and mobile operations are permitted in LTTS.
Stations in this service are used to relay television programming material between points. The stations may be used to link studio and broadcast transmitter, relay programming from one city to another, or to relay programming from live events.
