A Word to the Wise— FCC Inspections Noted

Issue 5 and Volume 117.

A Word to the Wise— FCC Inspections Noted During the period July 1, 1962—June 30, 1963, engineers of the Federal Communications Commission inspected 874 stations in the fire radio service. Citations were issued in 497 cases. These principally involved improper posting of licenses and faulty station record contents. During one month of 1963 the FCC monitored public safety licenses in general. Following 436 man-hours of monitoring, 10 citations were issued mostly for faulty station identification. These statistics were reported by FCC Public Safety Division Chief John J. McCure at the Houston conference of the International Municipal Signal Association. He recommended that fire service licensees pay more attention to FCC regulations to avoid future citations.
