        presence during normal business hours. Normal business hours are
        typically an 8 hour period between 8:00 am and 6:00 pm local time
        Monday through Friday. At 3:05 pm, a representative of the FCC

        Part 11 of this chapter and the EAS Operating Handbook be made in the
        station log. Stations may keep EAS data in a special EAS log which
        shall be maintained at a convenient location; however, this log is
        considered a part of the station log." At the time of inspection, the
        station manager stated that the EAS logs were at the residence of the
        employee that maintains the station's technical equipment.
