   stations are intended to be actuated manually or automatically and
   operated automatically as part of a ship or a survival craft station as a

   47 C.F.R. S: 80.1053: "Operation of Class A EPIRB stations shall be
   prohibited after December 31, 2006." The ship's ACR EPIRB that was falsely

       must be complete in itself and signed by an officer or authorized
       representative of Hawaii Railing Inc.. All replies and documentation
