Frequency of Response: Recordkeeping requirement; On occasion, semi-annual, weekly and annual reporting requirements. Obligation To Respond: Required to obtain or retain benefits. The statutory authority for this information collection is contained in 47 U.S.C. 154, 303, 307, 334, 336 and 554. Total Annual Burden: 20,096 hours. Annual Cost Burden: $97,025. Privacy Act Impact Assessment: No impact(s). Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: In general, there is no need for confidentiality with this collection of information. Needs and Uses: The Federal Communications Commission (‘‘Commission’’) is requesting that the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approve a three year extension of the information collection titled ‘‘Part 73, Subpart F International Broadcast Stations’’ under OMB Control No. 3060– 1035. This information collection is used by the Commission to assign frequencies for use by international broadcast stations, to grant authority to operate such stations and to determine if interference or adverse propagation conditions exist that may impact the operation of such stations. The Commission collects this information pursuant to 47 CFR part 73, subpart F. If the Commission did not collect this information, it would not be in a position to effectively coordinate spectrum for international broadcasters or to act for entities in times of frequency interference or adverse propagation conditions. Therefore, the information collection requirements are as follows: FCC Form 309—Application for Authority To Construct or Make Changes in an International, Experimental Television, Experimental Facsimile, or a Developmental Broadcast Station—The FCC Form 309 is filed on occasion when the applicant is requesting authority to construct or make modifications to the international broadcast station. FCC Form 310—Application for an International, Experimental Television, Experimental Facsimile, or a Developmental Broadcast Station License—The FCC Form 310 is filed on occasion when the applicant is submitting an application for a new international broadcast station. FCC Form 311—Application for Renewal of an International or Experimental Broadcast Station License—The FCC Form 311 is filed by applicants who are requesting renewal VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:25 Oct 25, 2016 Jkt 241001 of their international broadcast station licenses. 47 CFR 73.702(a) states that six months prior to the start of each season, licensees and permittees shall by informal written request, submitted to the Commission in triplicate, indicate for the season the frequency or frequencies desired for transmission to each zone or area of reception specified in the license or permit, the specific hours during which it desires to transmit to such zones or areas on each frequency, and the power, antenna gain, and antenna bearing it desires to use. Requests will be honored to the extent that interference and propagation conditions permit and that they are otherwise in accordance with the provisions of section 47 CFR 73.702(a). 47 CFR 73.702(b) states that two months before the start of each season, the licensee or permittee must inform the Commission in writing as to whether it plans to operate in accordance with the Commission’s authorization or operate in another manner. 47 CFR 73.702(c) permits entities to file requests for changes to their original request for assignment and use of frequencies if they are able to show good cause. Because international broadcasters are assigned frequencies on a seasonal basis, as opposed to the full term of their eight-year license authorization, requests for changes need to be filed by entities on occasion. 47 CFR 73.702 (note) states that permittees who during the process of construction wish to engage in equipment tests shall by informal written request, submitted to the Commission in triplicate not less than 30 days before they desire to begin such testing, indicate the frequencies they desire to use for testing and the hours they desire to use those frequencies. 47 CFR 73.702(e) states within 14 days after the end of each season, each licensee or permittee must file a report with the Commission stating whether the licensee or permittee has operated the number of frequency hours authorized by the seasonal schedule to each of the zones or areas of reception specified in the schedule. 47 CFR 73.782 requires that licensees retain logs of international broadcast stations for two years. If it involves communications incident to a disaster, logs should be retained as long as required by the Commission. 47 CFR 73.759(d) states that the licensee or permittee must keep records of the time and results of each auxiliary transmitter test performed at least weekly. PO 00000 Frm 00040 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 47 CFR 73.762(b) requires that licensees notify the Commission in writing of any limitation or discontinuance of operation of not more than 10 days. 47 CFR 73.762(c) states that the licensee or permittee must request and receive specific authority from the Commission to discontinue operations for more than 10 days under extenuating circumstances. 47 CFR 1.1301–1.1319 cover certifications of compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act and how the public will be protected from radio frequency radiation hazards. OMB Control Number: 3060–1092. Title: Interim Procedures for Filing Applications Seeking Approval for Designated Entity Reportable Eligibility Events and Annual Reports. Form Numbers: FCC Forms 609–T and 611–T. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Respondents: Business or other forprofit entities; Not-for profit institutions; and State, Local and Tribal Governments. Number of Respondents: 1,100 respondents; 2,750 responses. Estimated Time per Response: .50 hours to 6 hours. Frequency of Response: On occasion and annual reporting requirements. Obligation to Respond: Required to obtain or retain benefits. Statutory authority for this information collection is contained in 47 U.S.C. 4(i), 308(b), 309(j)(3) and 309(j)(4). Total Annual Burden: 7,288 hours. Total Annual Cost: $2,223,375. Privacy Impact Assessment: No impact(s). Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: In general, there is no need for confidentiality. On a case by case basis, the Commission may be required to withhold from disclosure certain information about the location, character, or ownership of a historic property, including traditional religious sites. Needs and Uses: The Commission will submit this expiring information collection to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) after this comment period to obtain the three year clearance from them. FCC Form 609–T is used by Designated Entities (DEs) to request prior Commission approval pursuant to Section 1.2114 of the Commission’s rules for any reportable eligibility event. The data collected on the form is used by the FCC to determine whether the public interest would be served by the approval of the reportable eligibility event. FCC Form 611–T is used by DE licensees to file an annual report, E:\FR\FM\26OCN1.SGM 26OCN1 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 207 / Wednesday, October 26, 2016 / Notices pursuant to Section 1.2110(n) of the Commission’s rules, related to eligibility for designated entity benefits. The information collected will be used to ensure that only legitimate small businesses reap the benefits of the Commission’s designated entity program. Further, this information will assist the Commission in preventing companies from circumventing the objectives of the designated entity eligibility rules by allowing us to review: (1) The FCC 609–T applications seeking approval for ‘‘reportable eligibility events’’ and (2) the FCC Form 611–T annual reports to ensure that licensees receiving designated entity benefits are in compliance with the Commission’s policies and rules.

[[Page 74430]]

    Estimated Time per Response: 2-720 hours.
    Frequency of Response: Recordkeeping requirement; On occasion, 
semi-annual, weekly and annual reporting requirements.
    Obligation To Respond: Required to obtain or retain benefits. The 
statutory authority for this information collection is contained in 47 
U.S.C. 154, 303, 307, 334, 336 and 554.
    Total Annual Burden: 20,096 hours.
    Annual Cost Burden: $97,025.
    Privacy Act Impact Assessment: No impact(s).
    Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: In general, there is no need 
for confidentiality with this collection of information.
    Needs and Uses: The Federal Communications Commission 
(``Commission'') is requesting that the Office of Management and Budget 
(OMB) approve a three year extension of the information collection 
titled ``Part 73, Subpart F International Broadcast Stations'' under 
OMB Control No. 3060-1035. This information collection is used by the 
Commission to assign frequencies for use by international broadcast 
stations, to grant authority to operate such stations and to determine 
if interference or adverse propagation conditions exist that may impact 
the operation of such stations. The Commission collects this 
information pursuant to 47 CFR part 73, subpart F. If the Commission 
did not collect this information, it would not be in a position to 
effectively coordinate spectrum for international broadcasters or to 
act for entities in times of frequency interference or adverse 
propagation conditions. Therefore, the information collection 
requirements are as follows:
    FCC Form 309--Application for Authority To Construct or Make 
Changes in an International, Experimental Television, Experimental 
Facsimile, or a Developmental Broadcast Station--The FCC Form 309 is 
filed on occasion when the applicant is requesting authority to 
construct or make modifications to the international broadcast station.
    FCC Form 310--Application for an International, Experimental 
Television, Experimental Facsimile, or a Developmental Broadcast 
Station License--The FCC Form 310 is filed on occasion when the 
applicant is submitting an application for a new international 
broadcast station.
    FCC Form 311--Application for Renewal of an International or 
Experimental Broadcast Station License--The FCC Form 311 is filed by 
applicants who are requesting renewal of their international broadcast 
station licenses.
    47 CFR 73.702(a) states that six months prior to the start of each 
season, licensees and permittees shall by informal written request, 
submitted to the Commission in triplicate, indicate for the season the 
frequency or frequencies desired for transmission to each zone or area 
of reception specified in the license or permit, the specific hours 
during which it desires to transmit to such zones or areas on each 
frequency, and the power, antenna gain, and antenna bearing it desires 
to use. Requests will be honored to the extent that interference and 
propagation conditions permit and that they are otherwise in accordance 
with the provisions of section 47 CFR 73.702(a).
    47 CFR 73.702(b) states that two months before the start of each 
season, the licensee or permittee must inform the Commission in writing 
as to whether it plans to operate in accordance with the Commission's 
authorization or operate in another manner.
    47 CFR 73.702(c) permits entities to file requests for changes to 
their original request for assignment and use of frequencies if they 
are able to show good cause. Because international broadcasters are 
assigned frequencies on a seasonal basis, as opposed to the full term 
of their eight-year license authorization, requests for changes need to 
be filed by entities on occasion.
    47 CFR 73.702 (note) states that permittees who during the process 
of construction wish to engage in equipment tests shall by informal 
written request, submitted to the Commission in triplicate not less 
than 30 days before they desire to begin such testing, indicate the 
frequencies they desire to use for testing and the hours they desire to 
use those frequencies.
    47 CFR 73.702(e) states within 14 days after the end of each 
season, each licensee or permittee must file a report with the 
Commission stating whether the licensee or permittee has operated the 
number of frequency hours authorized by the seasonal schedule to each 
of the zones or areas of reception specified in the schedule.
    47 CFR 73.782 requires that licensees retain logs of international 
broadcast stations for two years. If it involves communications 
incident to a disaster, logs should be retained as long as required by 
the Commission.
    47 CFR 73.759(d) states that the licensee or permittee must keep 
records of the time and results of each auxiliary transmitter test 
performed at least weekly.
    47 CFR 73.762(b) requires that licensees notify the Commission in 
writing of any limitation or discontinuance of operation of not more 
than 10 days.
    47 CFR 73.762(c) states that the licensee or permittee must request 
and receive specific authority from the Commission to discontinue 
operations for more than 10 days under extenuating circumstances.
    47 CFR 1.1301-1.1319 cover certifications of compliance with the 
National Environmental Policy Act and how the public will be protected 
from radio frequency radiation hazards.
    OMB Control Number: 3060-1092.
    Title: Interim Procedures for Filing Applications Seeking Approval 
for Designated Entity Reportable Eligibility Events and Annual Reports.
    Form Numbers: FCC Forms 609-T and 611-T.
    Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.

    Frequency of Response: On occasion and annual reporting 
requirements.
    Obligation to Respond: Required to obtain or retain benefits. 
Statutory authority for this information collection is contained in 47 
U.S.C. 4(i), 308(b), 309(j)(3) and 309(j)(4).
    Total Annual Burden: 7,288 hours.
    Total Annual Cost: $2,223,375.
    Privacy Impact Assessment: No impact(s).
    Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: In general, there is no need 
for confidentiality. On a case by case basis, the Commission may be 
required to withhold from disclosure certain information about the 
location, character, or ownership of a historic property, including 
traditional religious sites.
    Needs and Uses: The Commission will submit this expiring 
information collection to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) 
after this comment period to obtain the three year clearance from them. 
FCC Form 609-T is used by Designated Entities (DEs) to request prior 
Commission approval pursuant to Section 1.2114 of the Commission's

pursuant to Section 1.2110(n) of the Commission's rules, related to 
eligibility for designated entity benefits.
    The information collected will be used to ensure that only 
legitimate small businesses reap the benefits of the Commission's 
designated entity program. Further, this information will assist the 
Commission in preventing companies from circumventing the objectives of 
the designated entity eligibility rules by allowing us to review: (1) 
The FCC 609-T applications seeking approval for ``reportable 
eligibility events'' and (2) the FCC Form 611-T annual reports to 
ensure that licensees receiving designated entity benefits are in 
compliance with the Commission's policies and rules.
