Search here for AM, FM, or TV broadcast stations call signs that were previously in use, or were used by different stations. The search will list all stations that had been assigned those call letters since 1980, and indicate any stations using those call letters today. This search is limited to stations within the USA only, and to call sign changes made in 1980 or later.
Enter only the first four call letters (or three letters for a three letter callsign). Do not include the suffix (-FM, -TV, -LP, -DT, etc.).
In the FCC's Consolidated Database System (CDBS), call signs that start with a 'D', such as DKLYX or DW219BJ, are 'deleted' stations (no longer licensed), which differentiates them from operating stations. To search for deleted call signs, enter the call sign WITHOUT the 'D', KLYX or W219BJ.
