CLOSED: FCC.gov/data - How can we improve the Media Bureau’s contribution to FCC.gov/data?


The reboot.fcc.gov project has ended. All related public feedback forums have been closed.*

My idea is...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Applications accepted for filing are concurrently placed on public notice for petition to deny...

    This automated system needs to check the application for defects (CDBS already does this) but add an automated engineering comparison subroutine that compares applications against the background of existing broadcasters/applicants. If no engineering conflicts exist, applications are compared against disbarment records with FCC (i.e., parties with 'problems'). If no character issues are raised with this automated check, the applications which pass the defect-check, engineering-check, and character-check are accepted for filing, proposed for grant, and placed on public notice for petition to deny. After 31 days pass, if no objection to the application is raised by the public, the PDF-style permit/license…

    • REQUIRE that frequency auctions for AM and FM radio assignments be done at LEAST every 6 months.

      There are times when applications for a vacant assignment goes unfilled due to no auction for YEARS. This is ludicrous!

        • Require broadcasters log locally originated program time and report it annually; have report online.

          Broadcasters-myself included-should be proud of their locally originated programming content. This is part of our way of contributing to the public interest. Accordingly, why not have us report disaggregated programming data, specifically, the amount of locally originated programming content (by number of hours) versus other programming. Make these reports available online to the public. This gives the public a chance to see how much time we devote to the citizens in our local area and, further, it allows them to see where the programs they hear/see actually come from (in terms of source). Finally, it gives FCC a tool for…
