Federal Aviation Administration

[Docket No. FAA-2022-1273]

Agency Information Collection Activities: Requests for Comments; 
Approval of Clearance Renewal for Information Collection: For the 
Information Collection Entitled, Website for Frequency Coordination 

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of 
Transportation (DOT).

ACTION: Notice and request for comments.


SUMMARY: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FAA 
invites public comments about our intention to request the Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) approval in accordance with the Paperwork 
Reduction Act of 1995, FAA invites public comments about our intention 
to request the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval to allow 
renewal of the currently approved information collection via the FAA's 
deployed Web-based Frequency Coordination system (WebFCR), which 
collects certain broadcast and transmitter frequency information under 
OMB control number 2120-0786. The information collected is needed to 
perform the aeronautical studies, technical evaluations required and to 
meet the specified requirements for the radio frequency engineering 
pursuant to the FAA Order. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) 
Order 6050.32.B, Chapter 3, Section 302 outlines the US National 
Organizations, and the role of the National Telecommunications and 
Information Administration (NTIA) is assigning the Aviation Assignment 
Group (AAG) of the radio spectrum to FAA which support aeronautical 
services. Hence, FAA must ``authorize'' aeronautical frequencies of 
broadcast applications which impact the AAG bands.

DATES: Written comments should be submitted by November 28, 2022.

    Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of 
this information collection, including (a) Whether the proposed 
collection of information is necessary for FAA's performance; (b) the 
accuracy of the estimated burden; (c) ways for FAA to enhance the 
quality, utility and clarity of the information collection; and (d) 
ways that the burden could be minimized without reducing the quality of 
the collected information. The agency will summarize and/or include 
your comments in the request for OMB's clearance of this information 
    OMB Control Number: 2120-0786.
    Title: website for Frequency Coordination Request (WebFCR) 
    Form Numbers: Historically related to FAA Form 7460-1.
    Type of Review: Request for renewal of information collection.
    Background: 49 U.S.C. Section44718(c) under Broadcast Applications 
and Tower Studies states, `In carrying out laws related to a broadcast 
application--the Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration 
and the Federal Communications Commission shall take action necessary 
to coordinate efficiently--(1) The receipt and consideration of, and 
action on, the application; and (2) The completion of any associated 
aeronautical study. Currently, transmitter broadcast radio frequency 
data is collected via OMB Control 2120-0786 to address non-Federal, 
military, U.S. federal agency, state and municipalities broadcast 
applications which require consideration, analysis or aeronautical 
studies pursuant to 49 U.S.C. Section 44718(c).
    Respondents: Approximately 2400 annually. The Respondents are 
engineers, analysts, consultants, stakeholders or federal agency 
managers, including military services, who have a need to transmit on a 
radio frequency which is within the National Telecommunications and 
Information Administration's (NTIA) Aviation Assignment Group (AAG) 
frequency band assigned to the FAA for civil aviation use. The response 
to this data collection is required for the proponent to obtain FAA 
concurrence to use a radio frequency that impacts civil aviation. The 
information collected through the WebFCR portal supports the 
engineering, modeling, validation and workflow management of the 
request to evaluate if the request interferes or

impacts civil aviation operations pursuant to FAA Order 6050.32B.
    Frequency: Information is collected on occasion.
    Estimated Average Burden per Response: 0.2 Hours.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 480 Hours.

    Issued in Washington, DC, on September 23, 2022.
