LMCC Seeks Assistance from the Office of Managing Director
The Land Mobile Communications Council (LMCC) has sent a letter to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Managing Director stating that users of the FCC Universal Licensing System (ULS) “continue to experience slow or non-existent service” and that the unreliability of the ULS impedes the ability of FCC-certified frequency coordinators to serve those that rely upon licensed spectrum in the United States. The LMCC urged the FCC to be more communicative about outages and other business-affecting issues so that LMCC members may notify their constituents that application delays may be anticipated.
LMCC President David Smith said, “LMCC members are pleased that the FCC has implemented many of their suggested enhancements to the Universal Licensing System. However, while awaiting an updated ULS, the system is increasingly plagued by outages or slowdowns that make serving the needs of users of licensed spectrum nearly impossible. We seek to be a partner with the FCC on improving this System, but we must have greater communication on ULS issues.”
