§  73.1202   Retention of letters received from the public.

   All written comments and suggestions received from the public by
   licensees of commercial AM, FM, TV and Class A TV broadcast stations
   regarding operation of their station shall be maintained in the local
   public inspection file, unless the letter writer has requested that the
   letter not be made public or when the licensee feels that it should be
   excluded from the public inspection file because of the nature of its
   content, such as a defamatory or obscene letter.

   (a) Letters shall be retained in the local public inspection file for
   three years from the date on which they are received by the licensee.

   (b) Letters received by TV and Class A TV licensees shall be placed in
   one of the following separated subject categories: programming or
   non-programming. If comments in a letter relate to both categories, the
   licensee shall file it under the category to which the writer has given
   greater attention.
