Goto Year:2013 |
§ 97.27 FCC modification of station license grant.
(a) The FCC may modify a station license grant, either for a limited
time or for the duration of the term thereof, if it determines:
(1) That such action will promote the public interest, convenience, and
(2) That such action will promote fuller compliance with the provisions
of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, or of any treaty
ratified by the United States.
(b) When the FCC makes such a determination, it will issue an order of
modification. The order will not become final until the licensee is
notified in writing of the proposed action and the grounds and reasons
therefor. The licensee will be given reasonable opportunity of no less
than 30 days to protest the modification; except that, where safety of
life or property is involved, a shorter period of notice may be
provided. Any protest by a licensee of an FCC order of modification
will be handled in accordance with the provisions of 47 U.S.C. 316.
