  §  1.85   Suspension of operator licenses.

   Whenever grounds exist for suspension of an operator license, as
   provided in section 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 email the said
   application. In the event that conditions prevent emailing of the
   application before the expiration of the 15-day period, the application
   shall then be emailed 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.
