§ 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.
