§ 1.85   Suspension of operator licenses.

   Whenever grounds exist for suspension of an operator license, as
   provided in § 303(m) of the Communications Act, the Chief of the
   Wireless Telecommunications Bureau, with respect to amateur and
   commercial radio operator licenses, may issue an order suspending the
   operator license. No order of suspension of any operator's license
   shall take effect until 15 days' notice in writing of the cause for the
   proposed suspension has been given to the operator licensee, who may
   make written application to the Commission at any time within the said
   15 days for a hearing upon such order. The notice to the operator
   licensee shall not be effective until actually received by him, and
   from that time he shall have 15 days in which to mail the said
   application. In the event that physical conditions prevent mailing of
   the application before the expiration of the 15-day period, the
   application shall then be mailed as soon as possible thereafter,
   accompanied by a satisfactory explanation of the delay. Upon receipt by
   the Commission of such application for hearing, said order of
   suspension shall be designated for hearing by the Chief, Wireless
   Telecommunications Bureau and said suspension shall be held in abeyance
   until the conclusion of the hearing. Upon the conclusion of said
   hearing, the Commission may affirm, modify, or revoke said order of
   suspension. If the license is ordered suspended, the operator shall
   send his operator license to the Mobility Division, Wireless
   Telecommunications Bureau, in Washington, DC, on or before the
   effective date of the order, or, if the effective date has passed at
   the time notice is received, the license shall be sent to the
   Commission forthwith.
