Experimental Licensing System Frequently Asked Questions

Question: When filing an Assignment of License, it is required that the certification page of the 442 be submitted for each station affected by the assignment. How do I do this?

Answer:  A separate Form 442 certification is no longer necessary.

Question: When a graphics file is imbedded inside a Word 7 file, what should I call it? (i.e. does a scanned graphic pulled into Word 7 make it a *.jpg?) Are any valid formats Word recognizes valid for graphics?[ .bmp, .RTF, etc]

Answer: The file should be saved as a word document and specified as microsoft word in the file format portion of the Exhibits entry page.

Question: How are corrections made to the applicant's name for an existing license on the Form 405, 442 or STA applications?

Answer: In order to change the applicant's name, a letter must be filed with this office. Please ensure that the change in name does not warrent the filing of the Form 703 or 702.
