All transmittal letters should briefly explain the nature and purpose of the filing and indicate the date and method of filing of the original cover letter, as required by § 61.20(b)(1) of this part.
International carriers must certify that they are authorized under Section 214 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, to provide service, and reference the FCC file number of that authorization.
All cover letters and letters of transmittal shall include the FCC Registration Number (FRN) of the issuing carrier(s) on whose behalf the letter is submitted. See part 1, subpart W of this chapter.
A separate cover letter may accompany each publication, or an issuing carrier may file as many publications as desired with one cover letter.
