Members from a flying corps of the People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN), also known as the PLA Navy, are lauding the country’s new regulations on radio broadcasts in communities around its garrison.
It comes around three months after an illegal drug advertisement was heard over the air-to-ground command & control system of the flying corps as routine flight training was being conducted on December 22 last year.
Responding to the unexpected situation, the chief staff officer, surnamed Li, ordered use of an emergency procedure to ensure the safety of the pilots and warplanes.
An investigation was also launched immediately to figure out which radio channel broadcast the advertisement.
Ten hours later, the suspect involved in this case was found and detained.
According to a revised regulation on radio operations, radio frequencies as a resource belong to the state and are subject to management by the State Council and the Central Military Commission (CMC).
No organization or individual is allowed to broadcast without official permission, disturb normal wireless operations, or do anything to violate laws by using radio signals.
The authority may exercise control over radio in cases concerning national security, major national events or serious emergencies. – CRI
