Respondents are encourages to file electronically. The form has been modified to adopt requirements in various Commission rulemakings. Additionally, the Commission is increasing the number of respondents for potential winners to file in upcoming auctions, thus removing the need for repetitive emergency clearances submitted to OMB due to auction related changes (additional radio services necessary for auction winners).
