... I[t_]:= If[t<10||t>60,0,1]

Hi.  Just 2 cents for an alternative.
For a signal pulse, sometimes I'll remember it as follows:

What we have...

(E^(35 I w) Sqrt[2/\[Pi]] Sin[25 w])/w

1/2 (Sign[60-t]+Sign[-10+t])


Or transformed into something like this:

f[t_]:=UnitStep[-(t-10) (t-60)]

= = = = = = = = = =
