LMS Call Sign Reservations Update

Posted on July 28th, 2022 by

As of June 22, stations can reserve call signs for initial permits, exchanges, changes and contingent requests in the FCC’s Licensing & Management System (LMS), according to the FCC’s public notice announcing the change.  In addition to call sign reservation requests now being announced via the FCC’s daily releases, we have learned that they are also – for the first time – formally granted with an issued authorization that shows the prior and new call sign and the effective date.
