1. On December 7, 2004 the Bureau mailed its second audit letter and notice of cancellation to certain licensees operating with site-specific licenses in the Paging and Radiotelephone Service, part 22, subpart E, and site-specific licenses operating on exclusive private carrier paging channels in the 929-930 MHz band, part 90, subpart P.

2. Each licensee to whom this second audit letter and notice of cancellation was mailed must respond and certify by January 21, 2005 that its authorized Start Printed Page 76470station(s) has not permanently discontinued operations pursuant to 47 CFR 22.317.

3. Audit letters were mailed to licensees at their address of record in the Universal Licensing System. If a licensee receives 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 may not have been received. For instructions on how to proceed in this instance, licensees should call the Bureau's hot line at 877-480-3201.

4. The process for responding to the audit was included in the second audit letter and specific instructions are provided on the certification page of the audit response module. A response is mandatory and must be submitted electronically by January 21, 2005. Failure to provide a timely response to the second audit letter and notice of cancellation may result in the Commission presuming that the station has been non-operational as defined 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 enforcement action, including monetary forfeiture, pursuant to Section 503(b)(1)(B) of the Communications Act and 47 CFR 1.80(a)(2).
