by them for a period of 2 years. However, logs involving communications
incident to a disaster or which include communications incident to or
involved in an investigation by the FCC and about which the licensee
has been notified, shall be retained by the licensee until specifically
authorized in writing by the FCC to destroy them. Logs incident to or
involved in any claim or complaint of which the licensee has notice
shall be retained by the licensee until such claim or complaint has
been fully satisfied or until the same has been barred by statute
limiting the time for filing of suits upon such claims.
(b) Logs may be retained on microfilm, microfiche or other data-storage
systems subject to the following conditions:
(1) Suitable viewing—reading devices shall be available to permit FCC
inspection of logs pursuant to § 73.1226, availability to FCC of station

(2) Reproduction of logs, stored on data-storage systems, to full-size
copies, is required of licensees if requested by the FCC or the public
as authorized by FCC rules. Such reproductions must be completed within
2 full work days of the time of the request.
(3) Corrections to logs shall be made:
(i) Prior to converting to a data-storage system pursuant to the
requirements of § 73.1800 (c) and (d), (§ 73.1800, General requirements
relating to logs).
(ii) After converting to a data-storage system, by separately making
such corrections and then associating with the related data-stored

and when and by whom the corrections were made.
(4) Copies of any log required to be filed with any application; or
placed in the station's local public inspection file as part of an
application; or filed with reports to the FCC must be reproduced in
