  §  13.19   Operator's responsibility.

   (a) The operator responsible for maintenance of a transmitter may
   permit other persons to adjust that transmitter in the operator's
   presence for the purpose of carrying out tests or making adjustments
   requiring specialized knowledge or skill, provided that he or she shall
   not be relieved thereby from responsibility for the proper operation of
   the equipment.

   (b) In every case where a station operating log or service and
   maintenance log is required, the operator responsible for the station
   operation or maintenance shall make the required entries in the station
   log. If no station log is required, the operator responsible for
   service or maintenance duties which may affect the proper operation of
   the station shall sign and date an entry in the station maintenance
   records giving:

   the operator or conducted under his or her supervision;

   (2) His or her name and address; and

   (3) The class, serial number, and expiration date (if applicable) of
   the license when the FCC has issued the operator a license; or the PPC
   serial number(s) and date(s) of issue when the operator is awaiting FCC
   action on an application.

   (c) When the operator is on duty and in charge of transmitting systems,
   or performing service, maintenance or inspection functions, the license
   or permit document, or a photocopy thereof, or a copy of the
   application and PPC(s) received by the FCC, must be posted or in the
   operator's personal possession, and available for inspection upon
   request by a FCC representative.

   (d) The operator on duty and in charge of transmitting systems, or
   performing service, maintenance or inspection functions, shall not be
   subject to the requirements of paragraph (b) of this section at a
   station, or stations of one licensee at a single location, at which the
   operator is regularly employed and at which his or her license, or a
   photocopy, is posted.
