Limited Openings Still Available for 2018 ABIP

The MAB has a few openings in our Alternative Broadcast
Inspection Program, (ABIP) for the weeks of November 5-
16. Our inspector Mark Croom with Riverfront Communications,
LLC, has been doing ABIP Inspections for South Dakota since
2016 and comes to us with strong recommendations from the
South Dakota Broadcasters Association.

Having an ABIP inspection is like having a preventative check-
up from the doctor. Once you sign-up and pay for your
inspection, you will receive a letter of intent giving your station a
150-day grace period preventing the FCC from conducting a
routine inspection.

Once you pass an inspection, you will receive a 3-year
exemption keeping the FCC inspector from performing a routine
inspection at your station.  More importantly, it’s like an
insurance policy.  With your public file and many other
documents on-line, it makes it easier for the FCC to inspect
your files.  Our inspector takes great care to review your public
file and make suggestions on how you may improve it.
Members have said an ABIP is like a private Public File
Tutorial.

moderately priced MAB service is one of our most popular
