Manage Coordination Requests / Submit a Coordination Request
Submitting a coordination request involves uploading technical parameters and optionally uploading supporting information for proposed use of the band. When you submit a coordination request, the RFCP verifies the request data. Upon successful verification, the RFCP sends you an acknowledgment of receipt.
Impacted incumbents receive a request-for-coordination email from the RFCP. At this point, impacted incumbents have 10 days to review the request for completeness and accuracy. See Coordination Request Timelines for more information.
Follow the next steps to submit a coordination request.
Choose New Coordination Request from the menu bar.
In the New Coordination Request pop-up, click Download Data Template to ensure you initiate your coordination request with the most up-to-date Microsoft Excel data template.
Open the data template, fill in the information necessary to identify your coordination request in the template file’s General and Coordination Input tabs.
See the data template’s How To Use tab for data entry guidance.
