Update Existing FCC License

Administrative Update to an Existing FCC License – $95.00

The vast majority of Federal Communications Commission Authorizations (Licenses) will require some type of modification during the 10 year grant period.  Many components of an authorization will change and licensees will continue to operate under old parameters which then puts the licensee into non-compliance status.   It is the sole responsibility of the licensee to notify the commission of any parameter changes.

Changes requiring an administrative update include:

  • Contact Name
  • Mailing Address
  • Telephone and/or Fax Number
  • Control Point

Major modifications requiring frequency coordination include:

  • Change of Ownership
  • Change in Transmitter Location
  • Add/Delete Transmitter Locations
  • Change in Transmitter Antenna Height
  • Increase/Decrease Number of Units/Radios

(Please Note:  Major modifications will require additional fees and will be determined on a case by case basis.)

A licensee ownership change is accomplished by a modification known as an Assignment of Authorization if completed within 30 days of the actual ownership change. (see Assignment of Authorization to an Existing FCC License).  Failure to comply with the 30 day rule of notification for change of ownership will require an application for a new license.


A change in transmitter location is accomplished by a modification and requires frequency coordination. (see Modification to an Existing FCC License)
