For broadcasters, most of the increases over the 2002 amounts are modest. Examples include: an increase of $5 for license renewal applications for full power stations, to $150; an increase of $5 for ownership reports, to $55; an increase of $30 for long-form assignment and transfer applications, to $830; an increase of $5 for short-form assignment and transfer applications, to $120; and an increase of $115 for commercial FM radio new or major change construction permit applications, to $2,980.
