§ 76.613   Interference from a multichannel video programming distributor

   (a) Harmful interference is any emission, radiation or induction which
   endangers the functioning of a radionavigation service or of other
   safety services or seriously degrades, obstructs or repeatedly
   interrupts a radiocommunication service operating in accordance with
   this chapter.

   (b) An MVPD that causes harmful interference shall promptly take
   appropriate measures to eliminate the harmful interference.

   (c) If harmful interference to radio communications involving the
   safety of life and protection of property cannot be promptly eliminated
   by the application of suitable techniques, operation of the offending
   MVPD or appropriate elements thereof shall immediately be suspended
   upon notification by the District Director and/or Resident Agent of the
   Commission's local field office, and shall not be resumed until the
   interference has been eliminated to the satisfaction of the District
   Director and/or Resident Agent. When authorized by the District
   Director and/or Resident Agent, short test operations may be made
   during the period of suspended operation to check the efficacy of
   remedial measures.

   (d) The MVPD may be required by the District Director and/or Resident
   Agent to prepare and submit a report regarding the cause(s) of the
   interference, corrective measures planned or taken, and the efficacy of
   the remedial measures.
