Needs and Uses: On February 14, 2001, the Commission adopted a Report and Order, In the Matter of An Inquiry Into the Commission's Policies and Rules Regarding AM Radio Service Directional Antenna Performance Verification, MM Docket No. 93-177. This Report and Order relaxed the technical requirements for AM stations using directional antennas. Among other things, this Report and Order eliminated the need to file an informal application to specify new AM station directional antenna field monitoring points. 47 CFR Section 73.3538(b) requires a broadcast station to file an informal application to modify or discontinue the obstruction marking or lighting of an antenna supporting structure. The requirement to file an informal application to relocate the main studio outside the principal community contour has approval under 47 CFR Section 73.1125 (3060-0171). The data is used by FCC staff to ensure that the modification or discontinuance of the obstruction marking or lighting will not cause a menace to air navigation.Start Signature
