Be it enacted by the National Assembly of the Philippines:

SECTION 1. Section one of Act Numbered Thirty-eight hundred and forty-six, as amended by Commonwealth Act Numbered Three hundred and sixty-five, is further amended to read as follows:

"Section 1. No person, firm, company, association, or corporation shall construct, install, establish, or operate radio transmitting station, or a radio receiving station used for commercial purposes, or a radio broadcasting station, without having first obtained a franchise therefor from the National Assembly: Provided, however, That no franchise from the National Assembly shall be necessary for the construction, installation, establishment, or operation of an amateur station, an experimental station, a training station, a station on board a mobile vessel, train, or aircraft, or a private station in a place so outlying and so remote as to afford no public communication system with the outside world: Provided, further, That radio broadcasting stations established and operating at the time of the approval of this Act without the franchise herein required shall be exempt from obtaining such franchise.

Unless otherwise specified, 'station' or 'radio station as used in this Act shall refer to a radio transmitting station used for commercial purposes, or a radio broadcasting station."
