Filing Comments with the FCC International Bureau

Want to file your own comments to the FCC International Bureau? Here's how. The International Bureau is different from the rest of the FCC in this regard. It is not yet automated, although the FCC is presently working on this. So, basically, one has to send or fax a letter. (It is possible to email the comments, but this is something that was volunteered and it a privilege we would not want to see abused. We could package comments to the FCC in this matter.)

The process is simple. One mails the comments to the secretary of the FCC, noting the application. The header example below was taken from an application by the WCS Coalition. It is an excellent example:

Ms. Marlene H. Dortch
Federal Communications Commission
445 Twelfth Street, SW
Washington, DC 20554

Also, you will need to include your name and address. Warning: All information will become public.
