About Antenna Structure Registration (ASR)
Some fixed base antennas must be filed with the FCC and FAA either due to their height and/or proximity to an airport. Generally, antennas under 6.1 meters (20ft) do not require ASR/FAA filing.
We can run a evaluation to see if your antenna will likely require these filings. There is no fee for this evaluation, we perform this as a courtesy. Please call us if you like this evaluation.
The ASR consists of filing several documents and legal notices. Please note the process will take a 2-3 months to complete. The ASR registration process occurs in two parts; FCC ASR filing, and FAA filing.
Please understand that there is no guarantee the FAA/FCC will grant the ASR.
1 Note: Control stations are either repeaters, base station radios, or call boxes.
2 Note: It cannot always be determined if additional fees are required until your completed questionnaire is received, giving exact details of the application. If additional fees are required, then should you choose not to submit your application we will provide a full refund. After submission there can be no refunds.
The price includes all FCC fees, which we pay on your behalf. Because of this, once we receive your completed questionnaire a refund cannot be provided. All licenses are granted at the discretion of the FCC.
