  § 73.1944   Reasonable access.

   (a) Section 312(a)(7) of the Communications Act provides that the

   purchase of, reasonable amounts of time for the use of a broadcasting
   station by a legally qualified candidate for Federal elective office on
   behalf of his candidacy.

   (b) Weekend access. For purposes of providing reasonable access, a
   licensee shall make its facilities available for use by federal
   candidates on the weekend before the election if the licensee has

   preceding the relevant election period. Licensees shall not
   discriminate between candidates with regard to weekend access.
