  4. Grant of the authorization requested herein will not be construed as a finding on the part of the Commission:
    1. that the frequencies and other technical parameters specified in the authorization are the best suited for the proposed program of experimentation, and
    2. that the applicant will be authorized to operate on any basis other than experimental, and
    3. that the Comission is obligated by the results of the experimental program to make provision in its rules including its table of frequency allocations for applicant's type of operation on a regularly licensed basis.
