Sign up today for the FCC Alternative Inspection program (ABIP). Your voluntary participation in this program is the best insurance you can have against costly FCC violations. Stations that successfully pass are exempt from routine FCC inspections for 3 years (but not from FCC inspections that are part of a national enforcement effort or in response to a specific complaint about the station's operations). These inspections can also identify issues that could raise problems at license renewal time, which is coming up in 2020 for radio and 2021 for TV. ABIP Order Forms were emailed to members on October 31st and can be downloaded below.
If you have not yet done so, please return your station's order forms by February 28, 2020 to MBA via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or fax (612) 926-9761. Experienced engineers will begin inspections as early as mid-March (weather permitting).
