The following instructions explain methods by which a registrant can access in the ASR System its current official Antenna Structure Registrations (FCC Forms 854R), which include the watermark “Official Copy” imprinted on each page, in “Active” status, including “Granted” or “Constructed,” that are authorized under Part 17 of the Commission’s rules. Official registrations in any status other than “Active,” including, for example, current official registrations in “Cancelled,” “Dismantled,” or “Terminated” status, cannot be accessed electronically. The Commission will continue to provide unofficial reference copies of registrations online through the ASR System with the watermark “Reference Copy” imprinted on each page.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR DOWNLOADING OFFICIAL REGISTRATIONS

The ASR System provides a link, “Download Official Registration,” on a registrant’s ASR Dashboard homepage and under the “My Registrations” tab on its ASR Dashboard to download current official Antenna Structure Registrations in Active status.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR ACCESSING ELECTRONIC-ONLY OFFICIAL REGISTRATIONS

The ASR System provides a link on the registrant’s ASR Dashboard homepage to access the default setting that allows registrants to notify the Commission whether they wish to receive official registrations on paper through the U.S. Postal Service. The default setting looks like this:

"Receive Paper Registrations? Yes x No"

If registrants wish to obtain official registrations only electronically through the ASR System, they do not need to make any changes to the setting in ASR Dashboard. If a registrant does not change the setting, the Commission will no longer print and mail out official registrations on paper through the U.S. Postal Service.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR RECEIVING OFFICIAL PAPER REGISTRATIONS

If a registrant wishes to receive official registrations on paper, the registrant can change the setting described above by checking the “Yes” box. Registrants using multiple FCC Registration Numbers (FRNs) must choose the setting for each FRN.

OR

The registrant may contact the Licensing Support Center via phone, web or mail. All requests must include the registrant’s FRN(s).

Phone: (877) 480-3201, Option 2; TTY (888) 225-5322, Option 2.

Web: https://esupport.fcc.gov/request.htm.

Mail: Send a letter to the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau, Technologies, Systems and Innovation Division, 1270 Fairfield Road, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, 17325-7245.

If a registrant changes the setting described above to "Yes" or uses any of these other options, once an application is granted, the Commission will print and mail out on paper the resulting official registration(s) associated with the registrant’s applicable FRN(s). If a registrant elects to receive paper registrations, the registrant can also continue to access its official registrations electronically through ASR Dashboard or by email where the registrant includes a valid email address in its application.
