  FCC REMINDS STATIONS OF THEIR OBLIGATION TO MAINTAIN
  CONSUMER REFERRAL NUMBERS
  "In this Public Notice, we remind broadcasters of their
responsibility to provide consumer referral telephone numbers
to the Commission, and to publicize these numbers so that their

information about the station's transition to digital-only

  "We take this opportunity also to remind broadcasters that
they should be prepared to answer phone calls from their viewing
public in the hours immediately after their transition and in
the days that follow."
