How can we improve our current APIs?

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.

        The ability to search by multiple fields would be very nice and ability to specify exact matches. I can do a getLicenses?searchValue=N7GH, then use the license detail URL to obtain some specifics, but it would be very nice to have an XML interface be able to limit to Active licenses, and bring back different values like address and etc with the use of compound query arguemnts.

        agreed, getting a current filed address and things like trustee name/call for club/repeater callsigns would be great
