FCC Fee Update


ARRL Reports – New FCC Application Fee Will Not Apply to Amateur Radio License Upgrades

“We are pleased that the FCC will not charge licensees the FCC
application fee for license upgrade applications,” said ARRL
Volunteer Examiner Coordinator (VEC) Manager Maria Somma, AB1FM.
“While applicants for a new license will need to pay the $35 FCC
application fee, there will be no FCC charge for future upgrades and
administrative updates, such as a change of mailing or email
address. Most current licensees, therefore, will not be charged the
new FCC application fee until they renew their license or apply for
a new vanity call sign.”
