Statutory authority for this information collection is contained in 47

    Total Annual Burden: 8,231 hours.

    Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: There is no need for

    Needs and Uses: On April 18 2013, the Commission in a Fifth Report 
and Order, FCC 13-52, adopted changes to 47 CFR 90.425 of the 
Commission's rules to allow Private Land Mobile Radio (PLMR) licensees 
in the bands between 150 and 512 MHz that are licensed on an exclusive 
basis to transmit station identification information in digital format, 
on the condition that the licensee will provide the Commission with 
information sufficient to decode the digital transmission to ascertain 
the call sign transmitted. However, this gives a new group of licensee 
stations (PLMRs) an option regarding the method of transmission of 
required call sign information; it modifies the existing burden, and 
slightly increase the in-house cost burden--specifically the cost 
associated with providing the Commission sufficient information to 
decode the transmission--unless they choose the digital transmission 
option. Finally, the other part of this revision is adding one 
additional rule section which is 90.187 to this existing information 

Federal Communications Commission.
