FCC Public Notice Monitoring


FLAG automates the work required to monitor a station or geographic area at the FCC. Acting like an alert system, FLAG searches FCC Public Notice items and generates a report detailing all recent activities that impact your monitored station using distance and FCC spacing criteria. FLAG reports are delivered weekly (or on-demand) in an HTML format that is easy to read and share with colleagues or clients.
