LICENSE RENEWAL INFO

Amateur Radio Licenses are good for ten years from the date of issue. Is your license about to expire, or are you in the "Grace Period" window?

The "Grace Period" is a two year period following the expiration date shown on your license during which you can still renew your license. You cannot legally operate while in the "Grace Period" window until the renewal becomes official in the FCC database. Once your renewal becomes official, you can resume operating.

If you wait beyond the end of the "Grace Period" window, your license and call sign will be deleted from the FCC database, and you would have to start over by taking another license exam and getting a new call sign.

CHECK THE EXPIRATION DATE ON YOUR LICENSE. If your license has expired, and two years have not passed since that date, you're encouraged to renew your license as soon as possible before your "Grace Period" window closes. You've studied and passed an exam to earn your license, so don't let your efforts go to waste!

Remember, there is no fee when renewing your license directly with the FCC. If you need help renewing your license, contact us.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A REMINDER FROM THE FCC

As of February 2015, the Federal Communications Commission went "paperless" in order to cut expenses. This means that Amateur Radio Licenses are no longer mailed by the FCC.

Did you take an Exam recently?

Access the FCC Database to check your status.
