            • Where is the person-finder?

              Please make the person-finder (the directory) easier to find. Is it still here at all?

                    • Major transactions webpage

                      Please reinstate all of the transaction decisions that were on the old major transactions decisions page. I'm not sure why they were deleted but many of the decisions that have been deleted were precedent-changing so it would be helpful to have them all in one place again. I also find the alphabetical listing easier to use but I realize that is just a preference. Thanks for your consideration!

                          • All forms in one place with sample forms & downloadable or printable instructions

                            Having a hard time finding the forms that I'm looking for on the new site. Needing a 214 form but that is only available under the International Bureau - I go there and I have to sign in and begin to fill it out before I see what it looks like and what is required. Very annoying - best served with all forms on one page with instructions and a blank sample form so you can pre-fill it out prior to online entry.

                            • We all want to do license searches and they are difficult to find ... ULS is not obvious.

                              It is all in the title. Could not figure out what tab/category the ULS was in. Then when I tried TOOLS, there was something that looked like ULS so I clicked there and eventually found it there. It should be easier to check the status of a license - amateur radio service.

                                The challenge is, just like any new practitioner needs to take time to learn FCC-specific jargon (such as that “ULS” stands for “Universal Licensing System”), so too does the search algorithm need to be taught what the various abbreviations we use mean. Over the next month, we’re going to be working on making the search better aware of major systems and more responsive to common industry tasks.

                              • FCC Headlines -- Where's the News?

                                You're not putting key items like Wireless Competition Report links on your front page headlines, but do include some fluffy items there. To find the wireless report, relatively easily at least, I had to go to your old Website, where it was at the top of headlines. What gives? I'm afraid this editorial judgment just reinforces perception you're playing some sort of PR game with the new Website. You should play it straight.

                                • Regulations

                                  There have been several comments about rules and regulations... maybe there should be a link to existing rules and regulations (by CFR) on the "Rulemaking" page and it should definitely be visible as part of the "professional" page you're building for frequent users of the website.

                                        • 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.
