Section E (Service Loss Notices)

This section should only be completed by a station if the FCC's Signal Loss Report, available on http://www.dtv.gov, predicts that 2 percent or more of the population in that station's Grade B analog service contour will not receive that station's digital signal (See 47 C.F.R. § 73.674(b)(5) for additional details). "Phased transition" stations are exempt from this requirement unless their full authorized facility is predicted to experience this 2 percent or greater loss.
A station that will experience a substantial service loss when transitioning from analog to digital must air service loss notices, of no fewer than 30 seconds, daily between 8 a.m. and 11:35 p.m. At least three service loss notices per week must air between 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. in the Atlantic, Eastern and Pacific time zones, and between 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. in the Mountain, Central, and Alaskan time zones. Did your station run these notices, in addition to any other consumer education efforts required by these rules? radio button selectedYes radio button not selectedNo
