The Media Bureau's CDBS (Consolidated DataBase System) database was used for radio and television broadcast applications from 1999 into 2023.   It has since been replaced by the LMS database.    The data files below remain available but are not being updated.  Please use the LMS public data, which incorporates CDBS data.  

NOTE: as of October 1, 2023, the CDBS database is no longer being updated.  CDBS Public Searches still remain available for reference.  Please use the LMS database for most searches, especially for recent filings.
