FCC Changes Radio Licensing Procedure

FCC licensees can now log on to the FCC web site and download/print an "Official Copy" of their FCC radio Authorization/license. The FCC is no longer mailing an "original" printed license to licensees, unless specifically instructed to do so. Since there's no way to control the number of copies a licensee prints, this procedural change means that no longer will a licensee be required to pay for a duplicate license if the original copy is lost or damaged.

The instructions for printing an “Official Copy” of your FCC radio license are:

  1. Log into the FCC's Universal Licensing System (ULS) page at http://wireless.fcc.gov/uls/index.htm?job=home

  2. Log into the FCC License Manager page. To do this, click on the log in button next to Online Filing.

  3. Log into the FCC License Manager. Enter your FCC Registration Number (FRN), and password. Note: passwords are case sensitive

  4. On the left-hand side of the License Manager page, click on Download Electronic Authorizations.

  5. On the License Manager's Download Authorizations page select/add the authorizations/licenses you want to print.

  6. Print and/or save the authorizations you selected.
