Do not include the -FM, -TV, or -LP suffix.

This search displays whether a broadcast call sign is already in use.  If it is in use, the query identifies to whom it is assigned or reserved, and provides the mailing address of record for the licensee or permittee.

Only FCC broadcast station licensees and permittees may apply for and reserve broadcast station call signs.  See the Call Sign Reservation & Authorization System before applying for particular call letters.

For all translator stations, or alternatively for broadcast stations, please use the CDBS Station Search in place of the search on this page.

Commission licensees are required to maintain a current mailing address with the Commission, pursuant to 47 CFR Section 1.5.  Broadcast station mailing address changes may be made online in CDBS: see the CDBS Electronic Filing System information for the procedure.

Lastly, because the content constantly changes, the FCC does not maintain a list or separate dataset of radio or television broadcast station addresses, phone numbers, or e-mail addresses.


Information about radio broadcasting is available through the Audio Division and the Broadcast Radio Links page.

Information about television broadcasting is available through the Video Division page.
