Renewing your license using the
Universal Licensing System (ULS)
easiest way is to do it online. Go to http://wireless.fcc.gov/uls .
If you have not already registered with ULS, select "Register CORES/Call
follow the instructions. Once you are registered, select "Online Filing" and
follow the instructions. If you don't have a computer, I'm sure you
have a friend who does and can help. Try it!
To modify a license by mail do not, I repeat, DO NOT attempt to use the FCC Form 605. Obtain a copy of NCVEC Quick-Form 605 from:
http://www.arrl.org/files/file/ncvec605-3.pdf. (Your friend who has a computer can help you with this part.) Fill in section 1 and sign it. Leave
section 2 blank.
If you are an ARRL member, you can make changes free
by mailing the form along with a photocopy of your license to:
225 Main St.
Newington CT 06111
If you are not an ARRL member, the Sunnyvale VEC will
submit license updates for a fee. Send the form with a photocopy
of your license and a check for $6.00, payable to Sunnyvale VEC, to:
VEC ARC, Inc.
PO Box 60307
Sunnyvale, CA 94088-0307
The Sunnyvale VEC form is at www.amateur-radio.org/605ir.htm. Do not file this form with the FCC...it is for Sunnyvale VEC use in updating your license.
Any further questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
