Fee Code Criteria « FCCFees Home Page
 

Fee codes are based on a variety of factors, including whether the facility is a radio or television station, translator, or booster, and whether the facility is licensed or exists only as a new construction permit (CP).

For television stations, consideration is given to the band, the market ranking, and whether the station is a satellite of another station. For radio stations, consideration is given to the class of the station, the band (AM or FM), and the population within the city-grade (primary) coverage area.

The Payment Type Codes (PTC) and fee amounts for 2018 are as follows:
