The Federal Communications Commission has more than 40 databases on its website that allow users to search for licenses. The databases allow users to search by various criteria, including applications and complaints.
The databases are available at FCC.gov. An individual seeking information needs to select the appropriate database and then fill out the form that appears, in order to find an FCC license.
In addition to the ability to search by applications and complaints, individuals can also search using other criteria, such as by call sign, frequency range and location. The databases range from AM Radio Station Search to Electronic Tariff Filing System Search to Telecommunications Company Information.
