FCC Licensing

Navigating FCC requirements can be a daunting task.  We can help.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requires an FCC license for exclusive use of your own frequency for private, interference-free communications.  Navigating the FCC requirements can be a daunting task.  Our in-house frequency coordinators can help by handling all your FCC licensing requirements so you can focus on operations.

FCC Narowbanding Mandate
In January 2013, the FCC implemented new requirements mandating that all VHF and UHF licensees make use of narrowband channels.  To meet this requirement, many businesses had to purchase new radio equipment, while others had to simply upgrade their existing equipment.   The FCC requires a license modification to show that your radio equipment is Narrowbanding compliant.  The FCC enforces this requirement by not allowing you to renew your license and by potentially fining operators of noncompliant systems.

License Renewal Expirations
FCC licenses are typically valid for a period of 10 years.  If you have an expiration coming up in the next few months let us know.  We can work directly with the FCC to process your license renewal quickly and efficiently.

Did you get a letter notifying you of an upcoming FCC expiration on one of your licenses?
Several licensing companies send notifications like this several months before an application could even be processed by the FCC.  If you received a letter let us know and we can confirm your license status.

If you have not or are unsure if your license is up to date and/or meets Narrowbanding requirements, contact us.  We can work with you to confirm your status and modify your license for compliance.
