FCC to require valid email address on file

Beginning on June 29th, 2021, amateur radio licenses and applicants MUST provide the FCC with a valid email address. Failure to do so may lead to the application being rejected as “defective”.

Furthermore, if the FCC sends an email that is returned as undeliverable, the operator license is subject to revocation or suspension.

Under new Section 97.23, each license must show the grantee’s correct name, mailing address, and email address. “The email address must be an address where the grantee can receive electronic correspondence,” the amended rule will state. “Revocation of the station license or suspension of the operator license may result when correspondence from the FCC is returned as undeliverable because the grantee failed to provide the correct email address.”

Go to the FCC’s ULS License Manager System and log in with your FRN and password prior to June 29, 2021 and confirm or add an valid email address.
