  SOME CHANGES FOR PAPER-FILED DOCUMENTS AT THE FCC

  To protect the health and safety of its employees, the
following procedures now apply to paper documents filed at
FCC headquarters:

  * For documents mailed via the U.S. Postal Service: No change.
  Continue to mail papers to the FCC at 445 - 12th Street, S.W.,
  Washington, D.C. 20554.  The FCC will reroute them to its
  Capitol Heights facility for opening and inspection (see below).

  * For documents delivered by Federal Express or other express
  mail services, the special zip code of "20024" must be used.
  That is:  FCC, 445 - 12th Street, S.W., Washington, D.C. 20024.

  * All hand-delivered and messenger-delivered documents must
  now go to the FCC's Capitol Heights facility located at 9300
  East Hampton Drive, Capitol Heights, MD 20743.  Documents in
  envelopes are prohibited (you will be asked to leave the
  building and dispose of the envelopes in the container
  provided).

  The Commission continues to encourage its customers to use
its electronic filing systems.

  OFF PREMISES MAIL SORTING

  The Chief Engineer of one radio station owned by a large
group recently reported that ALL of his station's mail is now
being opened off premises.  Unfortunately, the sorting and
quarantine process takes time, and mail delivery to the station
is being delayed up to four weeks.  This includes bills for
essential services such as telephone and remote lines.

  FCC FORFEITURE WATCH - SELECTED ITEM

  Willis Broadcasting Corp. (WGRM-FM, Greenwood, Mississippi)
fined $25,000 for failing to respond to Commission communications,
not having EAS equipment installed, failing to register its
antenna structure, and not having its public inspection file
available during regular business hours.

  FCC's HRAUNFOSS SERVER CONTINUES TO GAIN POPULARITY

  Occasional delays may be experienced in accessing the
FCC's hraunfoss data server.  For example, the following URL
was provided in CGC Communicator #480:

http://hraunfoss.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/DA-01-2280A1.doc 

  FCC's Sheryl Segal informs us that "since installation of
hraunfoss, system usage keeps going up."  The Commission has found
that when they have more than 250 concurrent users, the server
turns away attempts to access the database.  The system is being
reconfigured as a "cluster" to essentially double its capacity,
an improvement that should be in place soon.

  BEST WTC PHOTO TURNS INTO A BAD LINK

  Last week we mentioned "the single best photo that we have
seen of the World Trade Center tragedy."  Unfortunately, the
link "went south" hours after the URL was published.

  CGC checks all links at the time a story is drafted, and
verifies them just before each newsletter is published.
Could our readers have overloaded the URL's circuits?  That
indeed would be wishful thinking!
