Termination Pending Icon This call sign or a component(s) of this call sign is in termination pending status for failure to meet the buildout requirement.

If the license is in termination pending status for failure to meet the buildout requirement, the call sign status will display as “Term Pending.” If one or more components (location or frequency) of a license are in termination pending status, an icon will appear next to the affected component(s) on the Locations or Frequencies tab(s).

NOTE: When searching in ULS License Search, all statuses are selected by default. To narrow your search, deselect undesired status codes.

Auth Type

Developmental—Authorizations that the FCC granted for developmental authority to construct and operate transmitters for the purpose of developing a new radio service or a new technology not regularly authorized under specific FCC rules.

STA—Authorizations that the FCC granted for temporary use (i.e., circumstances requiring immediate or emergency use of facilities, temporary authority to install and/or operate new or modified equipment, etc.).

Demonstration—Licenses used by licensees involved in the sale and/or marketing of radio equipment. Demonstration licenses may be used for purposes of demonstrating equipment to potential customers at trade shows or at other exhibitions, performing on site coverage studies for potential customers, or other uses as provided for under specific FCC rules.

Regular—Regular authorizations, not applicable for Developmental, STA, or Demonstration.

Dates

Grant Date
The date on which the license term (usually 10 years) begins. This date also sets the timetable for any applicable construction or coverage deadlines.

Effective Date
The date on which a license becomes effective. In most cases this is the same as the Grant Date. For modifications, the original Grant Date of the license will remain the same, but the Effective Date will be the day the Modification becomes effective.

Expiration Date
The date after which a license ceases to be valid. For example, a license with a 12/1/2004 expiration is no longer valid at 12:00am on 12/2/2004. In most cases wireless licenses have a 10-year license term, and the expiration date is the 10-year anniversary date of the original license grant date.

Cancellation Date
The date a call sign became inactive. The licensee may file an application to request cancellation. Licenses can become inactive when the license expires and is auto-deleted via ULS’s auto-expiration program. The FCC can also choose to terminate the license in the case where a licensee fails to meet its debt obligations to the U.S. government with respect to an auctioned license or for non-construction or discontinuance of operations.

Area of Operation

The area of operation covered by the license. The area of operation code for the MM License is N (Nationwide), including Hawaii, Alaska, and US Territories.

Frequency Bands

The frequency bands in which the license is authorized to operate.
