| Search Results
The ULS Search Results page is created for
you each time you submit a search. The top of the page displays
the search criteria you used in your search (whether you chose
a Basic, Advanced, Service-Specific, Specialized Search, Geographic
Search). The number of matches to your search criteria is
also displayed. If more than one page of data has been returned,
a Numbered Index of links to additional results pages is displayed,
along with a Next and Previous button as needed. Searches
may return a mixture of licenses and leases.
The Call Sign/Lease ID, Name, FRN, Radio
Service, Status, and Expiration Date for each license and
lease that matches your search criteria are displayed in rows
across the main portion of the page. The following icons may
be displayed next to a call sign:
The PA (Pending Application) icon indicates that the license
has a ULS application(s) pending.
The TP (Termination Pending) icon indicates that the license
or a component(s) of the license is in termination pending
status for failure to meet the buildout requirement.
The L (Lease) icon indicates that the license has a Lease
attached to that call sign. To view information about the
lease, click on the call sign to view the license details
and select the leases tab. If a lease record is displayed,
no L icon will appear.
Click the call sign of a license or the lease identifier
of the lease to access the detailed information for that record.
