GPO Releases Latest FCC rules
The FCC has announced that the FCC rules are now available from the Government Printing Office (GPO). The edition includes all amendments to the Commission's rules from Oct. 1, 2007 through Sept. 30, 2008.

Broadcasters will need up to three different volumes of the rules (Title 47 of the Code of Federal Regulations), to cover various aspects of their licenses. The new paperback publication containing Parts 0 to 19 includes rules on environmental impact (such as RF exposure), tower lighting and the Emergency Alert System. Broadcasters will also need Parts 70-79, which covers all broadcast and broadcast auxiliary services, as well as cable TV. Stations with microwave systems licensed under Part 101 of the FCC rules will need the book covering Parts 80 to "end."

These publications are priced at $64.00 each for domestic shipment and may be ordered by phone at 202-512-1803 or via the GPO's on-line bookstore at

Don't forget that continuously updated FCC rules are available at no cost through the Electronic Code of Federal Regulations (e-CFR). For FCC rules, select Title 47 from the list and browse to the appropriate section. Save the HTML file with the entire section to your hard drive for off-line access. The warning that the e-CFR Web site was in "beta" has been removed, but the first screen does caution that "The Electronic Code of Federal Regulations (e-CFR) is a currently updated version of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). It is not an official legal edition of the CFR. The e-CFR is an editorial compilation of CFR material and Federal Register amendments produced by the National Archives and Records Administration's Office of the Federal Register (OFR) and the Government Printing Office."

With higher resolutions and larger HD screens, wide shots using very wide lenses can be a problem because they allow viewers to see that infinity doesn’t quite resolve into perfect sharpness.
