Terrestrial RF Licensing, Inc. has made the difficult decision to discontinue operations at this time.
Any requests submitted prior to June 7, 2018 will be carried through to completion.
Terrestrial RF Licensing will not be accepting any further service requests beginning June 8, 2018.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Because the Broadcast Auxiliary Services (BAS) band (the frequency band used for STL's, RPU's, TRL's, etc) is subject to frequent changes, and because there are so many BAS licenses in use, the FCC does not coordinate the allotment of frequencies for the BAS band as closely as it does for some of the other broadcast bands. It is left up to the broadcasters themselves to coordinate any changes to their local BAS setup. To ensure that this coordination does take place and is fair to everyone, the FCC has established a set of rules to help determine who is to be notified, and how.
The process of notifying fellow broadcasters of a proposed change to the BAS setup is called "prior coordination". The letter/email used to communicate the proposal is the "prior coordination notice", or PCN.

Please note that, as shown in the sample map, a microwave shot originating in the city of Manassas, VA and directed towards, say, the Northeast will result in a frequency coordination area that includes Charlottesville, VA (which is almost 180° in the opposite direction!); Richmond, VA; Harrisonburg, VA; Washington, DC; almost all of Maryland and Delaware; a significant portion of both Pennsylvania and New Jersey; and even New York City, NY. In short, it's large.
While we try to address any and all objections, we cannot accept an objection if there is no technical basis for your complaint. Whenever you have reason to believe a proposed system might cause interference to your operation, we suggest you consult your station engineer (or a contract engineer, if no station engineer is available) to discuss the proposal.
