    • License View CSV File documentation, Header and Row Formats do not match

      The documentation (word) file that describes the format does not document several fields that are included in the header line of the CSV file. And there are 85 fields in the header (first line), but the remaining lines of CSV data have 89 elements!

      Given that I am attempting to write a parser for this CSV file this is causing me fits!

      Is there any way to clean up the documentation so that it matches the actual format, and maybe get the header line to match the actual body of the data since CSV is all about a 1-to-1 match…

      • Full License View Data CSV format zip file may be corrupted

        The file "fcc-license-view-data-csv-format.zip" appears to be corrupted. It is not readable/decompressable on various machines running WIndows 7 and XP.

        • Petitions for Special Relief

          Public Notices listing petitions for special relief should be returned in FCC search results and the Report Nos. should be returned in an EDOCS search. The ability to locate such documents is important to due diligence research.

          • Database for abusive communications

            An e911 dataset should be compiled and maintained in database form, such that an abusive originating ID is associated with the victim's ID. The dataset can be related to case files for orders of protection. An e911 interface for reporting abusive SMS communications might also be helpful.
