Time is of the essence when tracking FCC actions, yet it is extremely time consuming to manually search the FCC's CDBS database or Public Notice Release documents to find specific information. FLAG automates a search of FCC records, automatically delivering key information to subscribers.
Comprehensive Tracking of FCC Actions
FLAG automates a search of FCC records and ensures that subscribers are up-to-date on all recent FCC
activities by delivering key information and analysis directly to them.
With FLAG, a subscriber determines what they want to track. The
service then sends the an electronic report to the subscriber containing all FCC release items within 60 miles of the flagged station or geographic
site (city of license). The report also evaluates Release items outside of the 60 miles and warns
of any potential allocation conflicts.

subscribers of any item of conflict.

sends a comprehensive email report that warns
of any potential allocation conflicts. By reporting
