  §  97.27   FCC modification of station license grant.

   (a) The FCC may modify a station license grant, either for a limited
   time or for the duration of the term thereof, if it determines:

   (1) That such action will promote the public interest, convenience, and
   necessity; or

   (2) That such action will promote fuller compliance with the provisions
   of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, or of any treaty
   ratified by the United States.

   (b) When the FCC makes such a determination, it will issue an order of
   modification. The order will not become final until the licensee is
   notified in writing of the proposed action and the grounds and reasons
   therefor. The licensee will be given reasonable opportunity of no less
   than 30 days to protest the modification; except that, where safety of
   life or property is involved, a shorter period of notice may be
   provided. Any protest by a licensee of an FCC order of modification
   will be handled in accordance with the provisions of 47 U.S.C. 316.
