be utilized in the LPFM service, except as provided in paragraph (c) of
(c)(1) Public safety and transportation permittees and licensees,
eligible pursuant to § 73.853(a)(2), may utilize directional antennas in
connection with the operation of a Travelers' Information Service (TIS)

The use of a directional antenna as provided for in paragraph (c) of
this section will not be considered in the determination of compliance
with any requirements of this part.
