            interference.  This includes monitoring the 
            transmitting frequency for communications in 
            progress and other such measures as may be 
            necessary to minimize the potential for causing 
            interference.''  The dispatcher for Panorama 
            Towing was not capable of monitoring cochannel 
            communications to ensure that other users
