  §  80.311   Authority for distress transmission.

   A mobile station in distress may use any means at its disposal to
   attract attention, make known its position, and obtain help. A distress
   call and message, however, must be transmitted only on the authority of
   the master or person responsible for the mobile station. No person
   shall knowingly transmit, or cause to be transmitted, any false or
   fraudulent signal of distress or related communication.
