Form 315 question

Post by 50ohmload » Thu Jul 02, 2015 1:52 pm

I have been checking out FCC Form 315 for a group with FMs outside of an Arbitron market. The Interim Contour-overlap Methodology section of Worksheet 3 includes a simplified example on page 5. That example makes several references to various contour overlaps of the example stations. There are no visible contours on the PDFs I downloaded and printed - not on the (color) printout and not on the computer screen (using Adobe Reader.) Am I missing something on my copy or are the contours left to the imagination? Thanks!

Two ideas. 1) Try a Print Screen and paste it into a Paint screen. Maybe the colors will show up. 2) Try a different PDF reader. There are a couple bajillion of them.

They botched the PDF.

The 2010 version has the correct rendering (attached).
