  §  80.149   Answer to notice of violation.

   (a) Any person receiving official notice of violation of the terms of
   the Communications Act, any legislative act, executive order, treaty to
   which the United States is a party, terms of a station or operator
   license, or the rules and regulations of the Federal Communications
   Commission must within 10 days from such receipt, send a written
   answer, in duplicate, 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 must not be
   abbreviated by references to other communications or answers to other
   notices. The answer must contain a full explanation of the incident
   involved and must set forth the action taken to prevent a continuation
   or recurrence. If the notice relates to lack of attention to or
   improper operation of the station or to log or watch discrepancies, the
   answer must give the name and license number of the licensed operator
   on duty.

   (b) When an official notice of violation, impending violation, or
   discrepancy, pertaining to any provision of Part II of Title III of the
   Communications Act or the radio provisions of the Safety Convention, is
   served upon the master or person responsible for a vessel and any
   instructions appearing on such document issued by a representative of
   the Commission are at variance with the content of paragraph (a) of
   this section, the instructions issued by the Commission's
   representative supersede those set forth in paragraph (a) of this
