  1. Amateur License Lookup

    Please provide XML access to amateur license data.

    http://data.fcc.gov/api/license-view/basicSearch/getLicenses?searchValue=WA5ZNU gives me only basic data, including FRN.

    I tried http://data.fcc.gov/api/frn/getInfo?frn=... with the FRN but it gives no results for amateur FRNs.

    There's already an XML format used for amateur license data, or you can use your existing one, but please provide an XML call that returns the data.

    • JSON does not work

      The API does not appear to be honoring the format parameter when json or jsonp is requested.

      For instance, this query returns a XML document:
      http://data.fcc.gov/api/license-view/basicSearch/getLicenses?searchValue=Verizon%20Wireless&format=json

      • Provide ability to query antenna based on lat/long.

        Would like to have the ability to use geolocation data to query for antennas in a given location or in the radius of a given location.

        • Fix FRN search so it returns XML

          The FRN conversions page (http://reboot.fcc.gov/developer/frn-conversions-api) shows a sample XML response, but it does not return XML by default. Adding "format=xml" to the parameter list also does not work.

                • Consumer Broadband test

                  During the test while testing download speed, the arrow points from the computer to the web. Should be the other way around... it just makes sense.

                  • Currently, fcc census data API returns only state and county value for entered coordinates, would be nice if it returns city value too.

                    I want fcc API to return city value along with state and county value for the passed coordiantes.
