Total Annual Burden to Respondents: 125,000 hours. Total Annual Costs: None. Privacy Impact Assessment(s): No impact(s). Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: There is no need for confidentiality with this collection of information. Needs and Uses: 47 CFR 73.686 describes a method for measuring signal strength at a household so that the satellite and broadcast industries would have a uniform method for making an actual determination of the signal strength that a household received. The information gathered as part of the Grade B contour signal strength tests will be used to indicate whether a household is ‘‘unserved’’ by over-the-air network signals. Satellite and broadcast industries making field strength measurements for formal submission to the Commission in rulemaking proceedings, or making such measurements upon the request of the Commission, shall follow the procedure for making and reporting such measurements which shall be included in a report to the Commission and submitted in affidavit form, in triplicate. The report shall contain the following information: (a) Tables of field strength measurements, which for each measuring location; (b) U.S. Geological Survey topographic maps; (c) All information necessary to determine the pertinent characteristics of the transmitting installation; (d) A list of calibrated equipment used in the field strength survey; (e) A detailed description of the calibration of the measuring equipment, and (f) Terrain profiles in each direction in which measurements were made. 47 CFR 73.686 also requires satellite and broadcast companies to maintain a written record describing, for each location, factors which may affect the recorded field (i.e., the approximate time or measurement, weather, topography, overhead wiring, heights and types of vegetation, buildings and other structures, the orientation of the measuring location, objects of such shape and size that cause shadows or reflections, signals received that arrived from a direction other than that of the transmitter, survey, list of the measured value field strength, time and date of the E:\FR\FM\07APN1.SGM 07APN1 mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 66 / Monday, April 7, 2014 / Notices measurements and signature of the person making the measurements). 47 CFR 73.686(e) describes the procedures for measuring the field strength of digital television signals. These procedures will be used to determine whether a household is eligible to receive a distant digital network signal from a satellite television provider, largely rely on existing, proven methods the Commission has already established for measuring analog television signal strength at any individual location, as set forth in Section 73.686(d) of the existing rules, but include modifications as necessary to accommodate the inherent differences between analog and digital TV signals. The new digital signal measurement procedures include provisions for the location of the measurement antenna, antenna height, signal measurement method, antenna orientation and polarization, and data recording. Therefore, satellite and broadcast industries making field strength measurements shall maintain written records and include the following information: (a) A list of calibrated equipment used in the field strength survey, which for each instrument specifies the manufacturer, type, serial number and rated accuracy, and the date of the most recent calibration by the manufacturer or by a laboratory. Include complete details of any instrument not of standard manufacture; (b) A detailed description of the calibration of the measuring equipment, including field strength meters, measuring antenna, and connecting cable; (c) For each spot at the measuring site, all factors which may affect the recorded field, such as topography, height and types of vegetation, buildings, obstacles, weather, and other local features; (d) A description of where the cluster measurements were made; (e) Time and date of the measurements and signature of the person making the measurements; (f) For each channel being measured, a list of the measured value of field strength (in units of dBm after adjustment for line loss and antenna factor) of the five readings made during the cluster measurement process, with the median value highlighted.

Title: Telecommunications Carriers’ Use of Customer Proprietary Network Information (CPNI) and Other Customer Information, CC Docket No. 96–115. Form Number: N/A. Type of Review: Extension of currently approved collection. Respondents: Business or other forprofit entities. Number of Respondents and Responses: 3,600 respondents; 174,993,821 responses. Estimated Time per Response: 0.002 hours—50 hours. Frequency of Response: On occasion, one time, annual and biennial reporting requirements, recordkeeping requirement, and third party disclosure requirements. Obligation to Respond: Mandatory as required by section 222 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C. 222. Total Annual Burden: 405,957 hours. Total Annual Cost: $3,000,000. Privacy Act Impact Assessment: No impacts. Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: The Commission is not requesting that the respondents submit confidential information to the FCC. Respondents may, however, request confidential treatment for information they believe to be confidential under 47 CFR 0.459 of the Commission’s rules. Needs and Uses: Section 222 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C. 222, establishes the duty of telecommunications carriers to protect the confidentiality of its customers’ proprietary information. This Customer Proprietary Network Information (CPNI) includes personally identifiable information derived from a customer’s relationship with a provider of telecommunications services. This information collection implements the statutory obligations of section 222. These regulations impose safeguards to protect customers’ CPNI against unauthorized access and disclosure. In March 2007, the Commission adopted new rules that focused on the efforts of providers of telecommunications services to prevent pretexting. These rules require providers of telecommunications services to adopt additional privacy safeguards that, the Commission believes, will limit pretexters’ ability to obtain unauthorized access to the type of personal customer information from carriers that the Commission regulates. In addition, in furtherance of the Telephone Records and Privacy Protection Act of 2006, the Commission’s rules help ensure that law E:\FR\FM\07APN1.SGM 07APN1

maintain a written record describing, for each location, factors which 
may affect the recorded field (i.e., the approximate time or 
measurement, weather, topography, overhead wiring, heights and types of 
vegetation, buildings and other structures, the orientation of the 
measuring location, objects of such shape and size that cause shadows 
or reflections, signals received that arrived from a direction other

calibration by the manufacturer or by a laboratory. Include complete 
details of any instrument not of standard manufacture; (b) A detailed 
description of the calibration of the measuring equipment, including 
field strength meters, measuring antenna, and connecting cable; (c) For

buildings, obstacles, weather, and other local features; (d) A 
description of where the cluster measurements were made; (e) Time and 
date of the measurements and signature of the person making the 
measurements; (f) For each channel being measured, a list of the
