When a license, location or frequency is placed in a termination pending status, ULS lists the license or license component on the Weekly Termination Pending Public Notice and sends the licensee a notification at the address of record in ULS. The licensee has 30 days from the date of the Public Notice to file a Petition for Reconsideration demonstrating that they timely met the coverage or construction requirement.

Filing a petition for reconsideration is covered in 47 C.F.R. 1.106. At the very least, a petition for reconsideration as it relates to the automated termination process must be dated. It must be signed by the party responsible for the accuracy of the information and must include the signor’s mailing address and phone number. The petition should include a statement as to why you are requesting reconsideration and it MUST provide the actual date the station was constructed and placed into operation.

The petition must be filed electronically through ULS using the "Submit a Pleading" link on the ULS home page. When filing electronically, you will be required to complete information as to the filer and the contact, the call sign(s) in question, and then upload the petition as an attachment.

PLEASE NOTE: The filer and contact information you enter is not considered part of the pleading. The attached pleading must be complete in itself with the information required in rules.
