Special Temporary Authority (STA) Reports

FCC Bureaus and Offices are authorized to issue an STA for those subject-matter areas falling under their respective jurisdictions. An STA is the authority granted to a licensee to operate a communications facility, for a limited time, at a specified variance different from the terms of the station or service authorization granted under FCC rules for a particular class of station or service. Bureaus and Offices may issue STAs for emergency situations, such as natural disasters, restoration of communications, or other short term operations, where the applicant has made a showing that, due to extraordinary circumstances, it cannot wait for the normal licensing process to be completed.
