I just told one of my customers that I now understand why the lawyers charge so much to file these things even if there is no change...

At least in the new LMS system, there is supposed to be a way to "Verify and Submit" the next report after the first one is filed in LMS.

And to swerve slightly off course...

I am now trying to help a couple of stations file their Ownership reports.  The report went well after you figure out the odd LMS system but now they are not able to file Form 159 (and the required fee) because there is absolutely no explanation of what FCC Code 1 or FCC Code 2 might be.  None of the Form 159 help links seem to work and none of the referenced material gives specific info on what has to fill those fields. 

Leaving those fields open returns an error. 

Calling the FCC help desk twice has resulted in no firm answer...

Has anybody been succesful in filing their own ownership report and 159?

Thanks,

Ownership Reports

Rule § 73.3526(e)(5), 73.3527(e)(4)  
Retention until a new, complete ownership report is filed with the FCC.  
What's in here? These reports are filed every other year and in connection with the sale of a broadcast station and reflect what entities and individuals hold "attributable" interests in a broadcast station (that is, interests the Commission deems convey some influence over the station).

Is a Bienniel a Complete ownership report? Or do I keep all the bienneals and the last sale reports?

 

Thaks!

As a followup to that, when is the next biennial report due? The new system for filing these reports is very difficult to navigate.
