SUMMARY:

The Federal Communications Commission, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork burden invites the general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on the following information collection(s), as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995, 44 U.S.C. 3501 - 3520. Comments are requested concerning: (a) whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Commission, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the Commission's burden estimate; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on the respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology, and (e) ways to further reduce the information collection burden for small business concerns with fewer than 25 employees.

The FCC may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid control number. No person shall be subject to any penalty for failing to comply with Start Printed Page 26960a collection of information subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) that does not display a currently valid OMB control number.

DATES:

Written Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) comments should be submitted on or before July 12, 2010. If you anticipate that you will be submitting PRA comments, but find it difficult to do so within the period of time allowed by this notice, you should advise the FCC contact listed below as soon as possible.

Number of Respondents and Responses: 5 respondents; 5 responses.

Needs and Uses: The Commission will submit this expiring information collection to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) after this comment period to obtain the full three year clearance from them. There is no change in the recordkeeping requirement. There is an adjustment increase in the total burden hours which is due to two additional respondents now estimated for this information collection.

Section 87.109 requires that a station at a fixed location in the international aeronautical mobile service (IAMS) must maintain a log (written or automatic log) in accordance with the Annex 10 provisions of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Convention. This log is necessary to document the quality of service provided by fixed stations, including the harmful interference, equipment failure, and logging of distress and safety calls where applicable.

The information is used by FCC personnel during inspections and investigations to ensure that stations are licensed and operated in compliance with applicable rules, statutes and treaties. If the information is not collected, documentation concerning station operations will be unavailable, fixed stations in the IAMS may not be in compliance with treaty requirements, and enforcement efforts will suffer.
