5-step program to a better Public Inspection file (courtesy of Graham Brock)

This is from Graham Brock's website: http://www.grahambrock.com/public_file.htm

"Public Inspection Files have been a sore spot with broadcasters for a long time because no one seems to know what is really supposed to be in it, nor does anyone bother to keep it updated. If you have ever looked at the Rules and tried to determine what is supposed to be in the Public Inspection File, you'll understand why this is such a sore subject. In almost all of the Due Diligence Inspections we do, we find inadequate Public Inspection Files. The most common excuse is, 'Well, I didn't know what went in there.'

So, with that said, we have attempted to compile a "user friendly" Public Inspection File List and have created a 5-Step Program To A Better Public Inspection File. This list has been complied from the FCC's Rules & Regulations, the FCC's Web Site and the FCC's Self-Inspection Checklist. We have tried to be as thorough and as accurate as possible, however, it is your responsibility to contact your Communications Attorney to ensure compliance with the Commission's Rules."

If you're charged with maintaining your station's Public Inspection file, check it out. Call Stu or Jeff with any questions (912) 638-8028.
