License Management Fee Schedule

Your FCC issued Call Sign is your official license to operate a land mobile radio system. An FCC license is a dynamic instrument that includes periodic time sensitive evolution in order to maintain its good standing and your authority to continue operations on your radio system. AFC's License Management process provides peace of mind by:

  • Reviewing your call sign to ensure its current good standing basis, and
  • Ensure future FCC changes and time sensitive requirements are adhered to and supported.

The fees charged by the APCO Licensing Service for license management do not include the coordination fees charged by frequency coordinators or FCC filing fees.

Preliminary Call Sign Research
Identification of the call signs that are licensed to a customer based on specific licensee information submitted by the customer (i.e. known names by which the licensee may be referred to on an FCC call sign license and/or one or more FRN/FCC Registration Number).
Based on licensee names and/or FRNs provided by client. One Time Fee per Agency
Per primary agency $300


Initial Call Sign Review
Screening and reviewing in detail of call signs to identify potential errors and omissions. (Does not address any technical or operational interference issues which may affect an incumbent license or any other licensee.)
Based on number of call signs provided by the client. One Time Fee per Call Sign
1 to 5 $100
6 to 10 $90
11 to 20 $80
21 up $70


Ongoing Call Sign Monitoring
Ongoing oversight of license such as FCC notification requirements, termination notices, construction requirements etc. Includes annual contact/administrative information verification and maintaining licenses in a database.
