General

To check that the maximum power transmitted during a sound-programme transmission does not exceed the limits allowed by Administrations, it is recommended that broadcasting organizations and the terminal ISPCs of the international sound-programme connection should use volume-meters or peak programme meters, the same type of meter being used for preference by both the telephone Administration and the broadcasting organization of a country.

Since the international sound-programme connection is accurately adjusted before it is made available to the broadcasting organizations, there will be no danger of overloading the amplifiers during the sound-programme transmission if care is taken not to exceed the permissible limit at the sending end of the international sound-programme connection.

Hence, this check can be done only by the broadcasting organization and the ISPC of the transmitting country, and a check made further down the line would not seem to be very effective.

If so desired, monitoring equipment (volume-meters, peak-indicators) can be connected at the receiving end of the international sound-programme link and of the international sound-programme connection to obtain information about the general nature of the transmission. In this case, monitoring equipment at the two locations in the incoming country will have to be of the same type, but there is no need for the same kind of monitoring equipment to be used in both outgoing country and incoming country.
