Sec. 320. Designation of stations liable to interfere with distress signals.] The Commission is v. 3 authorized to designate from time to time radio stations the communications or signals of which, in its opinion, are liable to interfere with the transmission or reception of distress signals of ships. Such stations are required to keep a licensed radio operator listening in on the frequencies designated for signals of distress and radio communications relating thereto during the entire period the transmitter of such station is in operation.--(48 Stat. 1090, ch. 652, title III.)

EDITORIAL NOTE This section is embodied in the U.S. Code as sec. 320 of title 47.

Sec. 321. Distress signals and communications.] (a) The transmitting set in a radio station on shipboard may be adjusted in such a manner as to produce a maximum of radiation, irrespective of the amount of interference which may thus be caused, when such station is sending radio communications or signals of distress and radio communications relating thereto.

(6) All radio stations, including Government stations and stations on board foreign vessels when within the territorial waters of the United States, shall give absolute priority to radio communications or signals relating to ships in distress; shall cease all sending on frequencies which will interfere with hearing a radio communication or signal of distress, and, except when engaged in answering or aiding the ship in distress, shall refrain from sending any radio communications or signals until there is assurance that no interference will be caused with the radio communications or signals relating thereto, and shall assist the vessel in distress, so far as possible, by complying with its instructions.-- (48 Stat. 1090, ch. 652, title M; 50 Stat. 191, ch. 229.)

This section, as amended, is embodied in the U.S. Code as sec. 321 of title 47.

(b) The Government stations for which the above-mentioned division of time is established shall transmit radio communications or signals only during the first fifteen minutes of each hour, local standard time, except in case of signals or radio communications relating to vessels in distress and vessel requests for information as to course, location, or compass direction.-- (48 Stat. 1090-1091, ch. 652, title III.)
