        station employees competent to do so, having actual knowledge of the
        facts required. All entries, whether required or not by the
        provisions of this part, must accurately reflect the station
        operation. Any employee making a log entry shall sign the log,
        thereby attesting to the fact that the entry, or any correction or
        addition made thereto, is an accurate representation of what

        list shall include a brief narrative describing what issues were
        given significant treatment and the programming that provided this

        significant treatment and the programming that provided this
        treatment, for the quarter January-March of 2012.
