EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE MEETING SET
The Homewood Suites in Indianapolis will be the site of the
summer National SBE Executive Committee Meeting scheduled for
July 8. Members who wish to have anything brought up before the
Executive Committee should contact Leonard Charles.
by Leonard Charles
As your liaison to the SBE National, I invite you to contact me
with any concerns you believe deserve the attention of Nationally
elected Officers and Board members. The next opportunity I will
have to present concerns will be at the Executive Committee
meeting in July.
I have compiled un-official minutes of the National Board of
Directors meeting held at the NAB in April. You can download
them from the Chapter 24 BBS in files area #2 under the file name
I have been appointed the Chairman of the National SBE EAS
Committee. We will be aiding members and the industry in the
understanding and implementation of the new EAS rules. It would
be beneficial for you to read the new rules soon. You can
download them from the Chapter 24 BBS in files area #2 under the
file name EAS.TXT.
I continue to urge you to send a letter to your Washington
Representatives in support of the SBE effort to get an engineer
on the staff of each FCC Commissioner. To make this as easy as I
possibly can, I have uploaded two documents to the Chapter 24
BBS. The first is titled ENGONFCC.TXT which you can download and
"fill in the blanks" before you print and send it off. The
second is titled AREAREPS.TXT which is a listing of all area
Representatives and their Washington addresses. Pick those
appropriate to your area. Please take a moment to help the SBE
in this effort.

CLOSED CAPTIONING FOR COMPUTER SYSTEMS USED AS TELEVISION
The FCC has issued an interpretation to it's rules concerning
computer systems that also have the capability to be used as TV
receivers. The FCC has basically stated that any computer that
is sold with a monitor having a viewable picture of 13" or over
and is able to receive TV broadcasts must have the ability to
display closed captions. This rule would apply to systems like
the APPLE combined MAC/TV that is sold as an integrated unit and
also to any unit that is sold with a receiver capability and a
separate monitor. The FCC ruled that even if the monitor is
priced separately, but is sold as part of the same transaction,
it is considered a integrated unit as far as the rules are
concerned. The requirements for closed captioning do not apply
to computers or computer systems without the capability to
receive TV signals, computers sold without monitors, computers
with monitors having less than a 13" viewable picture, or to
separate "plug in" circuit cards that, when added to a computer,
would make it capable of receiving TV broadcasts.

ABOLISH THE FCC ?
By Tom Smith
Speaker Newt Gingrich, in comments to BROADCASTING and CABLE on
May 18th, stated that he would like to see the proposed
telecommunication-reform bill be more deregulatory including the
phasing out of the FCC in three to five years. He suggested that
the FCC oversight could be replaced by private negotiation.
His comments were followed on May 30th by a report by the
Progress and Freedom Foundation which also suggested that the FCC
should be eliminated. The foundation's plan said that the
spectrum should be treated as private property and that
interference and other problems, including those concerning the
public interest, could be settled by the courts. Also, they
suggested that one should be able to use their slice of spectrum
for any type of service they wish to provide. A TV broadcaster
could become a mobile phone provider if they wished.
The Progress and Freedom Foundation has close ties to the
Speaker, including providing 80% of the money for his televised
The elimination of the FCC has been raised before by Speaker
Gingrich in an interview in BROADCASTING and CABLE's March 20th
issue and also by Sen. Robert Dole earlier this year. Leaders of
the communication committees in both the house and senate, Rep.
Jack Fields and Sen. Larry Pressler have suggested that the FCC
take a smaller part in the regulation on the telecommunications
The proposals were criticized by Reed Hundt, Chairman of the FCC
and by broadcast and cable industry leaders.

U.S. COAST GUARD CEASES CW TRANSMISSIONS
Contributed by Neal McLain
The U.S. Coast Guard has ceased the use of continuous-wave
transmissions for weather and safety broadcasts.
The Coast Guard, in cooperation with the NOAA National
Meteorological Center (NMC) in Washington, DC, has been
transmitting weather and safety information to the maritime
public since 1937. These transmissions have been made in a
variety of formats, including continuous wave (CW), voice, fax,
and, most recently, using an all-digital system called NODDS.
CW was, of course, the medium used for those first Morse Code
transmissions back in 1937. CW transmitters were located on both
coasts, and a transmitter in Rogers City, Michigan served the
The era of CW transmissions has ended: the Coast Guard has closed
down its CW transmitters in favor of newer technologies.
The last CW transmission was made earlier this year from the
Coast Guard transmitter at Pt. Reyes, California. Following is
the text of that last transmission:
ALL BRASS POUNDERS
U.S. COAST GUARD RADIO SAN FRANCISCO / NMC STARTED PROVIDING CW
SERVICES TO THE MERCHANT FLEET AND THE MARITIME PUBLIC ON
FEBRUARY 1, 1937. THIS IS THE LAST MORSE TRANSMISSION TO BE MADE
FROM NMC AND BRINGS TO AN END FIFTY FIVE YEARS OF CONTINUOUS WAVE
SERVICES. IT WILL REMAIN THE CORNERSTONE UPON WHICH OTHER
COMMUNICATION MEDIUMS ARE BUILT. CW OPERATORS HAVE AND, UNTIL
THE LAST DIT IS SENT, WILL SET THE STANDARD FOR ALL
COMMUNICATIONS PROFESSIONALS TO FOLLOW. PROVIDING CW SERVICES
FROM NMC OVER THE PAST 55 YEARS HAS BEEN OUR PLEASURE. WE WISH
YOU ALL FAIR WINDS AND FOLLOWING SEAS.

WORK CONTINUES ON DEREG BILLS
By Tom Smith
Congress continues it's work on a bill that would deregulate most
of the communication industry. The House Commerce Committee
held hearings in May and has adopted a bill to be sent to the
full Congress. The Senate is also working on it's own bill which
differs from the House bill in many aspects.
While the form of the final bill is still subject to much debate,
many issues are starting to take shape. The Senate version of
the bill does not roll back regulations as far as the House bill
It now appears that the final act will have some increase in
ownership limits for broadcasters, extend license terms, allow
the FCC to go ahead with the granting the second channel for ATV,
make the returned NTSC channels subject to auction at the end of
the transition period. Subscription services on ATV channels may
also be subject to fees.
Telcos would be allowed into the video business and cable
operators will be allowed into the phone business. Cable rates
will be deregulated except for possibly the lowest basic level.
The regional Bell's will get into long distance services, but the
terms still are in the process of being worked out.
The subject of spectrum fees and auctions keep appearing in many
comments from both congress and Chairman Hundt of the FCC. The
FCC is currently working on rules that would extend auctions to
wireless cable and specialize mobile radio services.
It will be some time before the final bill takes shape, but, it
appears the same bill will be passed and it will most likely
cause more change in all the communication industry then any
number of new technologies.

MCI INVESTS IN NEWS CORP.
By Tom Smith
The long distance phone company MCI has invested up to $2 billion
in the News Corp. which is the parent company of the FOX-TV
network. MCI will invest $1 billion in News Corp. at the
beginning with the investment of another $1 billion at a later
date. When MCI has made the $2 billion investment, it will hold
a 13.5% share of the News Corp. with a option for up to a 20%
share. Both companies will also invest $200 million each in a
new media company.
MCI's investment came one week after the FCC ruled that the News
Corp., an Australian corporation, had violated the FCC's foreign
ownership rules by holding more than 25% of the FOX network and
it's owned and operated stations. The FCC is giving Rupert
Murdoch an opportunity to file a retroactive waiver.

MM Docket No. 95-42, FCC 95-155
The FCC is seeking comments on a number of proposals concerning
the establishment of data transmission services within the
existing NTSC video signal. There are two proposed types of
systems with the first using the vertical and horizontal blanking
period. The second type of systems uses a subcarrier within the
active video area that would carry the digital data signal.
The proposed systems using the vertical and horizontal blanking
periods consist of one proposed by the A.C. Nielsen Company that
would use line 22 to transmit data for rating and commercial
carriage measurement. The second blanking interval system that
was proposed is from YES! Entertainment Corporation. This system
would transmit a 14,160 bit data signal in the horizontal
blanking interval to be used be the "TV TELLY" talking toy bear.
The second type of data system uses a subcarrier within the
active video signal that is inserted at a level just above the
noise floor of the video signal. The two systems proposed
consist of the Digideck D-Channel system and the WavePhore "TVT1"
system which inserts a 384 kbit signal in the 3.9 to 4.2 mhz
portion of the active video signal.
The FCC seeks information on any degradation of the video signal
by any of these systems and the ability of broadcasters to
control and delete any of the data signals on their station.
The FCC would also like information on the possibility of the
introduction of a new service on the existing NTSC signal slowing
or impeding the recovery of the NTSC spectrum at the end of the
ATV transition period.
Comments are due June 23, 1995 and replies are due July 10, 1995.
This notice was released May 10, 1995 and published in the
FEDERAL REGISTER on MAY 9, 1995 on pages 24,606 through 24,609.

MORE LETTERS NEEDED TO CONGRESS
SBE's effort to have legislation introduced which requires each
FCC Commissioner have at least one senior staff member with an
engineering background continues. Chris Imlay, SBE's General
Counsel, is working with congressional staffs to obtain support
for the issue. Elected officials respond much better to Chris
when they have received even one letter about the issue from a
constituent. We have received copies of a number of letters but
more are needed to help pull together sufficient support from
across the country and across party lines.
A sample letter can be obtained from the SBE National Office or
from your February/March issue of the SBE SIGNAL. Please send
copies of your correspondence to the SBE National Office, 8445
Keystone Crossing, Suite 140, Indianapolis, IN 46240 and to Chris
Imlay at Booth Freret & Imlay, 1233 20th Street NW, Suite 204,
Washington, DC 20036.
