Exactly How Do I Get a FCC License for My RTK Radio?

Holy cow!

That [ Pirate article ] has only been out for two days and I am getting slammed by upset people.

Based on comments, I need to fully answer a couple of recurring questions. This is the first of the questions:

Exactly How Do I Get a FCC License for My RTK Radio?

I have used several licensing companies over the years. My current suggestion (I don’t have a horse in the race) is [ Business Radio Licensing ] in Laguna Niguel California. I am positive that there is licensing company in your neighborhood who will do you a good turn also. There are also a few who will screw you. [ This ] (A+) is why I initially choose BRL.

Go to this web address: [ New License ]  and fill out the questions. Here is help for the questions:

3. Frequency Requested: “Standard RTK GPS Pool”, Monitor: NO

4.  Band: 451-469; Splits: leave blank

5. Conventional.

6. Base and Mobile Simplex FB.MO.

7. Wattage: 35 watts in Mobile box.

8. Bandwidth 12.5 KHz

9. No

10. Digital Data

12. Location: list your state, or the states you work in, if you work everywhere then USA.

13: Other: Tripod, height above ground 20 feet.

16: In additional comments: ‘Request Temp License During Processing”, and list the emission designators from this table for all of the radios you will be using:

Be forewarned that requesting a 25 KHz designation may cause delays or problems.

The most common dessignator is 9K75F1D.

Good luck and clear sailing.
