Experimental Radio News reports on FCC-authorized experiments of more than routine interest. These are licensed through the Experimental Radio Service or Special Temporary Authority.

These include new technologies, startups, research projects, product development and demonstrations. Topics include consumer electronics, satellites, radar, high-frequency stations and mobile communications on land, sea or in the air. It does not cover general FCC or telecom industry news available elsewhere.

Why do you publish callsigns?

The callsign confirms that a license was issued, that the licensee is expected to conduct experiments and has made legal promises to the government.

A callsign may help you identify a station on the air. Some are exempt from, or may ignore, the station identification requirement.

Where are issues 1 and 2?

ERN 1 and 2 were published on another platform and are not currently available.
