      The AM and FM station quires have not been migrated to the new site. For now, you can find them by searching either “am query” or “fm query” in the search field at the top of every page, and it should be the first result. Alternatively, you can bookmark the query directly if you use the page frequently.

    • Provide public feed back from current tel com events that impact the public, such as ATT merger.

      Create a public forum for current events that shape the tel com industry, such as ATT merger with T-mobile, where the general public can provide their views for them.

        • Can no longer locate the Telecommunications ACt

          The link I had to the Telecommunications Act of 1934 now takes me to Reports and the Act is not there. In spite of everything I could think of doing, I no longer can access the Telecom Act in its entirety as I once could.

          • Please stop makeing the licnece tools hard to find.

            I use the site about once a week to look up license information, patterns and other items for our AM/FM cluster. and the new site has made all the search tools ****** to locate and ****** in the site. A direct link on the home page would helpful. The old site design and tools worked well, the new site seems geared to the consumer not the professional.

            • I approve of the new design, but it's hard to navigate.

              It's difficult to find all the departments without doing a search, the old site had all the information, not backgrounded by an interface. I think the new site is easier on the eyes and makes the FCC look more modern, but still needs to deliver the information properly.

                • I can not find Part 15, or any real regulations on your search or your site?

                  All I want is some simple information about FCC regulations (Part 15 in particular). However, I can not find any real regulations on your site. A search only results in articles referring to the regulations. This should be one of the core components of the site, give people access to the regulations.

                  • Provide thumbnails of FCC logo on home page for sharing on Facebook, etc.

                    When sharing http://www.fcc.gov/ as a link on Facebook, the options to select thumbnails (images to associate w/ link) do not include the FCC logo.

                    sort it out so that the new logo is recognized as an image/thumbnail.

                            • FCC seal on new site has error!

                              The seal at the lower left corner was a wiring error that stubbornly persists and should be a major embarrassment to an "expert agency" in wireless technology.

                              The seal shown is the same as this: http://history.nasa.gov/presrep98/fccLogo.gif

                              Here is the previous longstanding version:
                              http://cut-the-cable.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/FCC-Logo.jpg

                              Note the "wiring" different with the horizontal wires which is nonsensical but clearly visible. I assume it comes from an artist making an error and no one reviewing it.

                              The FCC seal is derived from the FRC seal of the late 1920s:
                              http://thisdayintechhistory.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/Federal_radio_commission.gif

                              The FCC seal is basically the horizontal shortwave antenna from the FRC seal with…

                              • More Kyle Stoneman. That is all.

                                Kyle Stoneman is only blurrily featured on the site. Our coalition feels he should have a more prominent role. Possibly performing a magic trick?

                                Also, the site looks great.

                                • Bring back chronological headlines list. It was an easy way to search using the find function.

                                  It was nice to be able to look at all of the headlines from each year as an easy way to filter out unneeded search results. Ex: I need to the open internet NOI. I know it came out in 2010 and I can then just go to 2010 and use a find function to find the name of the order.

                                    The site looks great. I'm loving the extent you took drupal based sites too. I can't wait to see it leave beta with all it's features polished and fleshed out.

                                        Create obvious hyperlink for making comments on AT&T's purchase of T-Mobile's USA operation. I want to voice my opposition to AT&T's purchase of T-Mobile's USA operation. Many other's also want to comment as well, but I do not see how I can voice my comments.

                                          It would be helpful if the Complaint link under the Enforcement Bureau link allowed consumers or licensees to enter information about a violation or a problem.
