Licensing

Obtaining Spectrum


There are several ways you may be able to obtain a paging license(s) from a current licensee. First, licensees may sell all or part of the license, subject to FCC approval, to other entities. Second, you may acquire a company, including its licenses. These transactions require Online Filing of Form 603 via the Universal Licensing System. Third, you may lease all or part of a licensee’s spectrum usage rights. Most leasing transactions require Online Filing of Form 608 via the Universal Licensing System. If you are interested in shared channels, you may apply for site-by-site authority.
