Illustration by Tim Lewis, used by permission.

Experimental Radio News examines experiments licensed by the Federal Communications Commission. It is focused on the Experimental Radio Service and not general FCC news available elsewhere.

It covers new technologies, development-stage companies and scientific projects that have obtained or requested FCC authorization for research and demonstrations. Topics include consumer electronics, satellites, high-frequency stations and mobile communications on land, sea or in the air.

Why do you publish callsigns?

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

A callsign may help you identify a station on the air. Some stations 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.
