WTB Sponsors Seminar of Universal Licensing System

The Wireless Telecommunications Bureau (WTB) of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will host a half-day seminar on the Universal Licensing System (ULS) on Thursday, March 19, 1998. This seminar will be held in the Commission Meeting Room, Room 854, 1919 M Street, N.W. beginning at 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The ULS is being developed to replace the ten existing wireless license processing systems. The seminar will feature a demonstration of a prototype of the ULS system and will provide attendees with information about the development and implementation of this system.

The ULS is internet accessible and provides electronic filing, registration and search capabilities via a personal computer (PC) equipped with FCC prescribed software (e.g. industry standard browser, etc.) and internet access via a service provider of choice.

Contact the Auctions Division of the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau at (888) 225-5322 (press option #2 at the prompt) to register and for general registration information. Reserved seating will be provided for pre-registered attendees. On-site registrations will be given on a first- come first-serve basis until room capacity is filled.

The seminar will be shown on closed-circuit television throughout the Commission. Video and audio duplications will be available after the seminar from the Commission's duplicating service, Infocus. Please contact Carole Clifton at (703) 834-0100.
