UHF TELEVISION CHANNEL ASSIGNMENT PLAN, REPORT OF THE NAEB STUDY TO DEVELOP A UHF ASSIGNMENT PLAN USING DIGITAL COMPUTER METHODS.
BRONSON, VERNON; AND OTHERS
THE PURPOSE OF THIS STUDY WAS TO DEMONSTRATE THE EFFICIENCY AND EFFECTIVENESS OF USING DIGITAL COMPUTER METHODS TO ESTABLISH AN ULTRAHIGH FREQUENCY UHF ASSIGNMENT PLAN. THE STUDY FOLLOWS UP A PREVIOUS NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF EDUCATIONAL BROADCASTERS (NAEB) SURVEY WHICH INDICATED THE NEED FOR FUTURE EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION CHANNELS BEYOND THOSE AVAILABLE UNDER THE EXISTING TABLE OF ALLOCATIONS. A PROPOSED TABLE OF ASSIGNMENTS WAS DEVELOPED THROUGH THE USE OF THE COMPUTER. IT IS DESCRIBED AS ONE OF THE BEST ARRANGEMENTS POSSIBLE, PROVIDING EQUITABLE SERVICE FOR ALL TELEVISION BROADCAST NEEDS. OVER TWICE THE NUMBER OF USABLE CHANNELS HAVE BEEN ADDED TO THE FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION (FCC) TABLE OF ASSIGNMENTS. THE NAEB RECOMMENDED THAT FCC ADOPT THE NEW TABLE OF ASSIGNMENTS, WITH THE UNDERSTANDING THAT THE RESERVED CHANNELS IN THE REPORT PROVIDE ONLY FOR MINIMUM EDUCATIONAL NEEDS. THE NAEB REPORT ALSO RECOMMENDED THAT THE FCC ACCEPT THE RECORDED DATA, WHICH ARE AVAILABLE FOR THE COMMISSION'S USE, AND THAT THE INFORMATION BE USED AS THE BASIS FOR PERIODIC REEXAMINATION AND POSSIBLE REALLOCATION OF UNOCCUPIED CHANNELS.
