The FCC is employing new procedures to increase the security of its Antenna Structure Registration System (ASR) and reduce the risk of unauthorized changes made to the system. Beginning tomorrow, both the current owner and the new owner of a tower will be required to approve any change in ownership registration.
Once the assignor (current owner) and the assignee (new owner) log into ASR, and complete their respective portions of the application, they must provide the signature of an authorized person.
Related changes will be made to FCC Form 854, Antenna Structure Registration, on the same date.
Read the multi-step electronic and paper process for the current and new owner here. An Ownership Change (OC) letter will be sent to the assignor after the application is granted. The assignor may delete a partially completed application at any time until it is sent to the assignee. After an application is sent to the assignee, only the assignee can delete it. The ASR system will automatically delete saved OC applications after 30 days if the assignee fails to complete the application.
To implement the changes, the ASR online system will be unavailable to the public Thursday morning, February 14, from 6 a.m. until about 10 a.m. Comments? Email Us.
