|FCC's Universal Licensing System |
If you haven't already, please visit the ULS website to register. The FCC is hoping that most of your transactions with the FCC ( e.g. address changes, license renewals) will take place electronically in the future. You will still be able to do transactions on paper forms, however, electronic filing will be considerably quicker, more accurate, and less costly.
|RACES Call Signs: As part of the Biennial review decision, the FCC also decided it will not renew RACES call signs. It had already discontinued issuing new RACES calls. In the future, RACES operators will use their own calls in lieu of a RACES station call.|
