Alternative Broadcast Inspection Program
Dear Fellow Broadcasters:
The enclosed information will give you a pretty good idea of the FCC endorsed Alternative Broadcast Inspection Program (ABIP). As Connie has indicated to you, your participation is completely voluntary. The only stations that will be identified to the Commission are those that have passed the inspection, and have been sent their Certificate of Compliance.
In an effort to use both your time, and the time of the ABIP Inspectors in the most efficient manner, the ABIP inspections will be conducted by area or city. That is to say, that when a station schedules an inspection in a particular area or city, the Inspector will attempt to schedule as many inspections in that same general area as possible.
ABIP inspections, as a rule do not take a great deal of time, but it is important that the participating stations are prepared for the inspections, and are cooperative with the inspectors.
