Most low-power television or translator stations extend the service area of a full-power television station by receiving the full-power station’s off-air signal and then rebroadcasting the programming on another channel. After the full-power television station discontinues analog broadcasting on February 17, 2009, the low-power television station must be able to receive the full-power station’s digital off-air signal. The Act directs NTIA to administer a program through which an eligible lowpower television or translator station may receive compensation toward the cost of the purchase of a digital-toanalog conversion device that enables the conversion of the incoming digital signal of its corresponding full-power television station to analog format for transmission on the station’s analog channels.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    The BC-170A, BC-170B, and the BC-170D are used to collect 
information such as personal data and work experience from job 
applicants. Selecting officials review the information shown on the 
form to evaluate an applicant's eligibility for employment and to 
determine the best-qualified applicants to fill Census jobs. The three 
forms are tailored to the particular job type for which application is 
made.
    The BC-170 series of forms is used throughout the census and 
intercensal periods for the special census, pretests, and dress 
rehearsals for short-term time limited appointments. Applicants 
completing the form for census related positions are applying for 
temporary jobs in office and field positions (clerks, enumerators, crew 
leaders, supervisors). In addition, the BC-170 may be used as an 
alternative when applying for temporary/permanent office and field 
positions (clerks, field representatives, supervisors) on a recurring 
survey in one of the Census Bureau's twelve Regional Offices (ROs) 
throughout the United States. During the decennial census, the BC-170 
is intended to expedite hiring and selection in situations requiring 
large numbers of temporary employees for assignments of a limited 
duration. The use of this form is limited to only situations which 
require the establishment of a temporary office and/or involve special, 
one-time or recurring survey operations at one of the ROs. The form has 
been demonstrated to meet our recruitment needs for temporary workers 
and requires significantly less burden than the Office of Personnel 
Management (OPM) Optional Forms that are available for use by the 
public when applying for Federal positions.
