FCC DTV Transition Form 387 Due Oct. 20

The FCC is tracking broadcasters' progress in the DTV transition through FCC Form 387 updates. Broadcasters that have not completed construction of their final post-transition DTV facilities need to file a Form 387 by Oct. 20. Based on conversations with broadcasters and manufacturers, it appears delivery dates for late-ordered equipment may be slipping. Scheduling crews for equipment installation and check out may also be difficult, even for work after Feb. 18.

See FCC Public Notice DA 08-2264 – Television Stations Reminded to Update Their FCC Form 387 – DTV Transition Status Report By Oct. 20, 2008 for additional information. To view the filing for any station, visit the FCC CDBS application search page, enter the station call letters, including -TV if applicable, and look for filings with the prefix BDTUCT.
