FCC Licensing

Entities that own, or will own, radio equipment that is subject to FCC Rules & Regulations Part 90 need a valid license.

Part 90 is the guideline for frequency regulation for Private Land Mobile Radio Services. If you are an individual, commercial business, or government agency, you will need a license prior to operation of your communications equipment.

We work closely with a licensed frequency coordinator so we can take care of ALL your FCC licensing requirements. We can assist you with new applications, renewals, relocations and modifications.

In January 2013, the FCC implemented new requirements that mandated all VHF and UHF licensees make use of narrowband channels. This required some businesses to purchase new equipment, while others had us simply modify their equipment. A license modification is required to show that this was done. If you aren’t sure you have completed these narrowbanding requirements, simply contact us and we’ll let you know. The FCC is enforcing this new requirement by not allowing you to renew your license unless your equipment is narrowband compliant. They could also fine operators of noncompliant systems.

FCC licenses are typically good for 10 years. Each license has an expiration date on it. If you have an expiration coming up within the next few months, let us know and we will take care of all the paperwork. Did you get a letter notifying you of an upcoming FCC expiration on one of your licenses? If so, contact us or send us a quick email. Several licensing companies send notifications like this several months before an application could even be processed by the FCC.
