ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the Form 387 of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC). He argues that the form is full of tricks for the applicant because the FCC calculates the form which will require 2 hours each of legal and engineering assistance with the cost of $700. He adds that the digital television (DTV) report form is lengthy because it does require data gathering. He suggests that individuals need not to check question letter c if the station is not yet at full DTV power.
