A REPORT OF A STUDY OF NATIONWIDE ASSIGNMENTS OF TELEVISION CHANNELS FOR MAXIMUM SERVICE AND EFFICIENCY BY THE USE OF ELECTRONIC DIGITAL COMPUTER METHODS.
BRONSON, VERNON; AND OTHERS
THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS STUDY WAS TO DEMONSTRATE THE EFFICIENCY AND EFFECTIVENESS OF USING COMPUTER METHODS IN ESTABLISHING LOCATIONS OF ULTRAHIGH FREQUENCY TELEVISION BROADCASTING CENTERS. THE STUDY IS A FOLLOWUP TO A PREVIOUS SURVEY WHICH INDICATED THE NEED FOR EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION CHANNELS IN ADDITION TO THOSE AVAILABLE UNDER THE EXISTING TABLE OF ALLOCATIONS. A PROPOSED TABLE OF ASSIGNMENTS WAS DEVELOPED THROUGH THE STUDY, AND IS DESCRIBED AS ONE OF THE BEST ARRANGEMENTS POSSIBLE TO PROVIDE SERVICE FOR ALL TELEVISION BROADCAST NEEDS. ONE OF THE MORE IMPORTANT RESULTS OF THE STUDY IS THAT OVER TWICE THE NUMBER OF USABLE CHANNELS HAS BEEN ADDED TO THE FEDERAL COMMUNICATION COMMISSIONS'S TABLE OF ASSIGNMENTS. MOST OF THESE CHANNELS HAVE BEEN PLACED WERE THEY ARE NEEDED. BY ADHERING TO RULES AND STANDARDS OF THE FCC, THE PROPOSED CHANNELS WILL NOT DISTURB ANY OF THE PRESENTLY ACTIVE STATIONS. IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT THE FCC USE THE TABLE OF ASSIGNMENTS PRODUCED BY COMPUTER AS A BASIS FOR REALLOCATION AND FOR EXPANSION OF THE PRESENT TABLE TO MEET PRESENT AND FUTURE BROADCAST NEEDS. (JC)
