Night Operations*
Does your experiment require operating during the hours of darkness? All efforts will be made to accomodate, however resources for night operations are limited.
Communication Frequency*
Will you require Frequency Utilization? If your experiment will be radiating on a given frequency or frequency band, you must have prior approval to transmit on that frequency. Prior approval may include compliance with Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Title 47, Part 15 or a Special Temporary Authority (STA) from the FCC. If equipment is government owned and operating within a Federal Band, you must have National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) frequency approval. Your authority to radiate should be submitted along with your nomination or emailed directly to The FCC recommends you submit you request at least 30 days prior to the start of the event.
