SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

OMB Control No.: 3060-0104.

Title: Temporary Permit to Operate a Part 90 Radio Station.

Form No.: FCC Form 572.

Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.

Respondents: Individuals or households, business or other for-profit, not-for-profit institutions, state, local or tribal governments.

Number of Respondents: 2,000.

Estimated Time Per Response: 6 minutes.

Frequency of Response: Recordkeeping requirement.

Total Annual Burden: 200 hours.

Total Annual Cost: N/A.

Needs and Uses: Applicants are required to complete FCC Form 572 if they wish to have immediate authorization to operate 2-way radio equipment in Part 90 radio services. Applicants eligible to hold a radio station authorization in the Private Land Mobile Radio Service may use this form as a temporary permit to operate their equipment during processing of an application for license grant. This form is completed and posted at the applicant's station and is not submitted to the FCC.

OMB Control No.: 3060-0746.

Title: Application for Electronic Renewal of Wireless Radio Services Authorizations.

Form No.: FCC Form 900.

Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.

Respondents: Individuals or households, business or other for-profit, not-for-profit institutions, state, local or tribal governments.

Number of Respondents: 35,255.

Estimated Time Per Response: 10 minutes.

Frequency of Response: On occasion reporting requirement.

Total Annual Burden: 5,852 hours.

Total Annual Cost: $2,155,675.

Needs and Uses: This “generic” renewal application may be used in lieu of FCC Forms 313R, 405A, 452R and 574R, to file electronically for renewal of Wireless Radio Services Authorizations. Concurrent with renewal, applicants may also request a change of licensee name (with no change to corporate structure, ownership or control), change of mailing address, re-instatement of a Land Mobile license, and notify the Commission of a change in the number of mobiles/pagers for a Land Mobile license.

Applicants still desiring to file for renewal of license manually may still do so by submitting the FCC Forms 313R, 405A, 452R, or 574R, depending upon which radio services for which they are licensed.

This generic renewal form displays information from the current authorization as it exists in the Commission's license database based upon the call sign entered by the applicant. Information can be added and edited if necessary and electronically submitted to the Commission. It is estimated that 90% of these applications “auto-grant” within a few days of receipt and only 10% require further examiner review.

The information is used by engineers for enforcement and interference resolution purposes.
