  §  101.303   Answers to notices of violation.

   Any person receiving official notice of a violation of the terms of the
   Communications Act of 1934, as amended, any other Federal statute or
   Executive Order pertaining to radio or wire communications or any
   international radio or wire communications treaty or convention, or
   regulations annexed thereto to which the United States is a party, or
   the rules and regulations of the Federal Communications Commission,
   must, within 10 days from such receipt, send a written answer to the
   office of the Commission originating the official notice. If an answer
   cannot be sent or an acknowledgment made within such 10-day period by
   reason of illness or other unavoidable circumstances, acknowledgment
   and answer must be made at the earliest practicable date with a
   satisfactory explanation of the delay. The answer to each notice must
   be complete in itself and may not be abbreviated by reference to other
   communications or answers to other notices. If the notice relates to
   some violation that may be due to the physical or electrical
   characteristics of transmitting apparatus, the answer must state fully
   what steps have been taken to prevent future violations, and, if any
   new apparatus is to be installed, the date such apparatus was ordered,
   the name of the manufacturer, and promised date of delivery. If the
   installation of such apparatus requires a construction permit, the file
   number of the application must be given or, if a file number has not
   been assigned by the Commission, such identification as will permit
   ready reference thereto. If the notice of violation relates to
   inadequate maintenance resulting in improper operation of the
   transmitter, the name and license number of the operator performing the
   maintenance must be given. If the notice of violation relates to some
   lack of attention to, or improper operation of, the transmitter by
   other employees, the reply must enumerate the steps taken to prevent a
   recurrence of such lack of attention or improper operation.
