  §  25.154   Opposition to applications and other pleadings.

   (a) Petitions to deny, petitions for other forms of relief, and other
   objections or comments must:

   (1) Identify the application or applications (including applicant's
   name, station location, Commission file numbers, and radio service
   involved) with which it is concerned;

   (2) Be filed within thirty (30) days after the date of public notice
   announcing the acceptance for filing of the application or major
   amendment thereto (unless the Commission otherwise extends the filing
   deadline);

   (3) Filed in accordance with the pleading limitations, periods and
   other applicable provisions of § § 1.41 through 1.52 of this chapter,
   except that such petitions must be filed electronically through the
   International Bureau Filing System (IBFS) in accordance with the
   applicable provisions of part 1, subpart Y of this chapter;

   (4) Contain specific allegations of fact (except for those of which
   official notice may be taken) to support the specific relief requested,
   which shall be supported by affidavit of a person or persons with
   personal knowledge thereof, and which shall be sufficient to
   demonstrate that the petitioner (or respondent) is a party of interest
   and that a grant of, or other Commission action regarding, the
   application would be prima facie inconsistent with the public interest;
   and

   (5) Contain a certificate of service showing that it has been mailed to
   the applicant no later than the date the pleading is filed with the
   Commission.

   (b) The Commission will classify as informal objections:

   (1) Any pleading not filed in accordance with paragraph (a) of this
   section;

   (2) Any pleading to which the thirty (30) day public notice period of
   § 25.151 does not apply; or

   (3) Any objections to the grant of an application when the objections
   do not conform to either paragraph (a) of this section or to other
   Commission rules and requirements.

   (c) Except for opposition to petitions to deny an application filed
   pursuant to § 25.220, oppositions to petitions to deny an application or
   responses to comments and informal objections regarding an application
   may be filed within 10 days after the petition, comment, or objection
   is filed and must be in accordance with other applicable provisions of
   § § 1.41 through 1.52 of this chapter, except that such oppositions must
   be filed electronically through the International Bureau Filing System
   (IBFS) in accordance with the applicable provisions of part 1, subpart
   Y of this chapter.

   (d) Reply comments by a party that filed a petition to deny may be
   filed in response to pleadings filed pursuant to paragraph (c) or (e)
   of this section within 5 days after expiration of the time for filing
   oppositions unless the Commission extends the filing deadline and must
   be in accordance with other applicable provisions of § § 1.41 through
   1.52 of this chapter, except that such reply comments must be filed
   electronically through the International Bureau Filing System (IBFS) in
   accordance with the applicable provisions of part 1, subpart Y of this
   chapter.

   (e) Within 30 days after a petition to deny an application filed
   pursuant to § 25.220 is filed, the applicant may file an opposition to
   the petition and must file a statement with the Commission, either in
   conjunction with, or in lieu of, such opposition, explaining whether
   the applicant has resolved all outstanding issues raised by the
   petitioner. This statement and any conjoined opposition must be in
   accordance with the provisions of § § 1.41 through 1.52 of this chapter
   applicable to oppositions to petitions to deny, except that such reply
   comments must be filed electronically through the International Bureau
   Filing System (IBFS) in accordance with the applicable provisions of
   part 1, subpart Y of this chapter.
