of our hard-earned tax money. Thanks to the good folks at the FCC.
If the script does not work for you , please use the one on the FCC website:
Search for radio station information in the FM broadcast band (88 MHz to 108 MHz). You
may request one-line-per-record list output, or more detailed "query" output. The data files
used for this query are updated each morning.
Selection of a TEXT output option allows the user to generate a formatted output table
which can be imported into other programs. Text tables do not contain all CDBS data fields,
but include the values most commonly sought by users. Save the screen output as a text (.txt)
For a list of stations authorized to transmit both analog and digital signals, use the
following links instead of the AM Query: [ AM | FM ]
Stations Within a Radius
Must enter Radius and Degrees Latitude and Longitude, at a minimum.
Radius Search may be combined with other fields above.
Note on the pre-2000 "VAX flat file" format option above: To retrieve
all data, choose no other options (may take several minutes to download). Save the screen
output as a text (.txt) file. Or you may retrieve the current data in a
zipped file [ Layout ].
This format is intended for use with software used prior to 2000. We do not recommend development
of new software using this format since some fields are truncated and some data is not complete.
Please Support RF Cafe by purchasing
my ridiculously low−priced products, all of which I created.
RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed
formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit
design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...
