For FCC's [Search for Application Information] (See
http://licensing.fcc.gov/prod/cdbs/pubacc/prod/cdbs_pa.htm), some of
the choices for [Application Types] and [Application Status] are no
longer useful for searches and therefore should be removed as choices.
So, I find better success by using the Service, State, File number
suffix Form Number and date range to narrow the search results to a
close representation of what I want. You can use "%" as a wild-card
ending (example: File# suffix "201708%" will show all applications
filed in August 2017).
For your desire to find unbuilt CPs, the application search is not as
helpful since all applications remain in the database even after they
are superceded. However, FCC's Broadcast Station Search (See
https://www.fcc.gov/media/radio/fm-query) will show the CPs only
until the license application for the built CP is granted. After that
the CP is no longer relevant therefore is not displayed. So it will
likely save you some time to use that search and select "Construction
Permits" in the [Record Types] field.

Is there a place on the web to find out who has C.P.s?
I'm sure the FCC site has something, but I've never been impressed
with how user unfriendly the site has been.
