Sec. 76.614 Cable television system regular monitoring.
Cable television operators transmitting carriers in the frequency
bands 108-137 and 225-400 MHz shall provide for a program of regular
monitoring for signal leakage by substantially covering the plant every
three months. The incorporation of this monitoring program into the
daily activities of existing service personnel in the discharge of their
normal duties will generally cover all portions of the system and will
therefore meet this requirement. Monitoring equipment and procedures
utilized by a cable operator shall be adequate to detect a leakage
source which produces a field strength in these bands of 20 V/m
or greater at a distance of 3 meters. During regular monitoring, any
leakage source which produces a field strength of 20 V/m or
greater at a distance of 3 meters in the aeronautical radio frequency
bands shall be noted and such leakage sources shall be repaired within a
reasonable period of time. The operator shall maintain a log showing the
date and location of each leakage source identified, the date on which
the leakage was repaired, and the probable cause of the leakage. The log
shall be kept on file for a period of two (2) years and shall be made
available to authorized representatives of the Commission upon request.
