1. On September 28, 2004, the Federal Communications Commission's (Commission) Wireless Telecommunications Bureau (Bureau) began its license audit of the operational status all site-specific licenses authorized in the Paging and Radiotelephone Service, part 22, subpart E, and site-specific licenses authorized on private carrier paging exclusive channels in the 929-930 MHz band, part 90, subpart P.

2. Every licensee holding authorizations in the above radio services must respond and certify, by November 12, 2004, that its authorized station(s) has not permanently discontinued operations from the date of initial constriction and operation pursuant to 47 CFR 22.317.

3. Audit letters were mailed to the licensees at their address of record. If a licensee received more than one audit letter, they must respond to each letter sent by the Commission in order to account for all of its call signs that are part of the audit. Licensees can use the Audit Search at​licensing/​audits/​paging to determine if a particular call sign is part of the audit. If the Audit Search shows a letter was mailed, the licensee is required to respond to the audit even though the audit letter was not received. For instructions on how to proceed in this instance, licensees should call the Commission at 717-338-2888 or 888-CALLFCC (888-225-5322) and select option 2.

4. The process for responding to the audit was included in the audit letter. A response is mandatory and must be submitted electronically by November 12, 2004. Failure to provide a timely response may result in the Commission presuming that the station(s) has permanently discontinued operations as described under 47 CFR 22.317, and thus the license may be presumed to have automatically cancelled. Failure to provide a timely response may also result in an enforcement action, including monetary forfeiture, pursuant to section 503(b)(1)(B) of the Communications Act and 47 CFR 1.80(a)(2).
