The amateur license of Reuben E. Gross, of New York City, was temporarily revoked for sending and receiving coded messages to and from Palestine and for transmitting deceptive signals, the Federal Communications Commission announced here last night.

According to the F.C.C. findings, Gross, between April 2 and Sept. 3 of last year, transmitted and received in “behalf of an unidentified third person coded messages from a radio station in Palestine. In order to obscure the identity of the Palestine transmitter, the F.C.C. said, Gross used false call signals.
