      Instructions for Viewers
      Viewers do not need to register with CDC. Beginning February 9, a
      list of registered viewing sites open to guests will be updated daily
      on the Broadcast Web Site. After February 9, viewers are strongly
      encouraged to periodically check the web site to determine if more
      viewing sites have registered in their area. Viewers without Internet
      access may call the National Prevention Information Network at
      800-458-5231. Persons in search of a viewing site are encouraged to
      contact a registered viewing site between February 9 and April 12 to
      request seating.


      Setting up a Viewing Site
      Organizations are asked to set up their own viewing sites as soon as
      possible. To do this, identify and reserve a viewing site with a
      steerable antenna that receives either C- or Ku_band satellites.
      Examples of such sites include schools, hospitals, community colleges,
      universities, county extension offices, and local chapters of the
      American Red Cross. Live calls will not be taken during this
      broadcast. Locating a fax machine near the viewing room will allow
      viewers to fax in questions.


      To register a viewing site after February 9, please visit the
      Broadcast Web Site or Fax Information System (Document Number 130037)
      or call 800-458-5231. To receive site materials or be listed as a viewing
      site online, please register your site as soon as possible after
      February 9.


      Encouraging Attendance
      After reserving a viewing site, organizations are encouraged to
      invite colleagues from other local organizations to view this
      broadcast (see "Target Audience"). To encourage attendance,
      some organizations have used:
      - mass e-mails
      - monthly mailings
      - personal invitations
      - flyers
      Sites may use the fact sheet as a flyer.
      Please see Document 130037 on the CDC Fax


      Information System for additional tips on encouraging attendance.


      An Important Message to All Viewing Locations
      To ensure satellite reception, we strongly encourage:
      - training or hiring a technician to operate the satellite equipment, and
      - having that person participate in the satellite signal tests the day
      before the broadcast and the day of the broadcast.
      - Participation in both signal tests is especially important if your
      site experienced a technical problem with a previous satellite
      broadcast.
