If you have an emergency coordination, we will try to assist, however, most of the DoD Frequency Managers are out of the office as well.


Normal processing time for coordinations is 7-10 business days.  For short notice broadcaster requests, AFTRCC requires a minimum of three business days to process coordinations.  Requests submitted after 1:00 PM CST will be considered received the next business day.  Any requests received with less than three business days prior to proposed commencement of operations will be rejected.  Federal holidays will not be considered a business day.  

AFTRCC may be closed on other holidays, the dates of which will be posted on the AFTRCC website two weeks prior.  Every reasonable effort will be made by AFTRCC to provide coordination, however the timeliness of AFTRCC’s response is partly contingent upon on the responsiveness of DoD Frequency Managers, which is not within AFTRCC’s control.


AFTRCC is pleased to announce that we have transitioned to an online coordination portal.   All applications must now be submitted via application portal.  After creation of the account, the user will be able to log in, and then complete and submit the online application.  The portal supports invoicing and payment of coordination fees. CHECKS ARE NOT ACCEPTED. PAYMENT MUST BE MADE VIA MASTERCARD, VISA, OR DISCOVER CARD.

The AFTRCC Portal can be accessed by clicking on the following link Spectrum-E: Login

Failure to follow instructions will result in the return of the submitted application to requestor without any processing.


Complete the appropriate coordination request form at Spectrum-E: Login


For applications submitted in the Spectrum-E portal, invoicing and payment will be completed via the portal. Once payment is made the file will be sent to the appropriate coordinator for processing. CHECKS ARE NOT ACCEPTED. PAYMENT MUST BE MADE VIA MASTERCARD, VISA, OR DISCOVER CARD.


Coordination processing time is normally 5-7 days after payment is received. 

Please note that times can be extended depending on the DoD frequency Management office.


Once a decision as to concur/non-concur has been made the coordinator will email the appropriate documentation to attach to your FCC application.


The purpose of Flight Test Ground and Mobile Stations is to communicate with properly licensed Aircraft Stations. Coordination requests for Flight Test Ground or Mobile Stations must include either the call sign of an Aircraft Station authorized for the same frequency(ies) or a coordination request for the appropriate Aircraft Station


All requests for frequency coordination by Aerospace & Flight Test Radio Council (“AFTRCC”) are subject to the following terms and conditions:

AFTRCC provides recommendations to the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) for non-Government use of flight test voice and telemetry frequencies. AFTRCC’s role is strictly advisory; in all cases the FCC makes the decision whether to issue a license.

Applicants are advised that no representations or warranties, express or implied, are made as to the interference-free nature of any given frequency or frequencies which AFTRCC coordinates, or as to whether any given frequency recommendation is best suited for the Applicant’s purposes.

Applicants should also be aware that frequencies coordinated by AFTRCC are shared with other users; no one user is entitled to exclusive use of a frequency in any given area. Multiple users may be, and often are, licensed or have government assignments for use of the same frequencies. Hence, notwithstanding any FCC issuance of a license to the Applicant, transmission on any given frequency may be subject to day-to-day, hour-by-hour scheduling with Government Area Frequency Coordinators (“AFCs”) or other agencies.

In return for AFTRCC’s processing of the Applicant’s request, the Applicant agrees to release and hold harmless AFTRCC, its officers, directors, agents, representatives, and member companies (and their respective officers, directors, employees, owners, and agents) from and against any and all claims, losses, liabilities, damages or expenses which may arise now or in the future as a result of the Applicant’s acceptance of AFTRCC’s recommendation, or its use of the recommended frequency(ies).
