THINGS TO BRING TO TEST SESSION


Should You Register With FCC Before the Test?

It may be advantageous for you to register with the FCC before taking your first license test. It will save you from having to give your social security number to the VE team and it will pave the way for later on-line filings for such things as address changes and license renewals.

Records of amateur licenses are kept by the FCC in a computer system called the “Universal Licensing System” or ULS. ULS makes it possible for people who hold licenses to make filings on-line without the need to obtain paper forms and mail them back. ULS will accept applications for address change, renewal, or vanity call signs.

In order to use ULS, you must be registered. There are two ways this can happen: manually and automatically. Manual registration can be done on-line by going to the FCC's web site. Auto-registration happens any time you file a paper application with the FCC (such as at an examination session) and are not already registered.

If you register manually on-line, you will have the opportunity to choose a password. You can then use this password for any future on-line filings you wish to make.

If you are registered automatically, the FCC will assign a password and should mail it to you after your license is issued.

If you already hold a license, you may or may not be registered depending on how recent your last FCC filing was.

If you are not sure if you are registered, one way to find out is to do a search for your own license and notice if you have an “FRN” assigned. Go to http://wireless.fcc.gov/uls and choose the search for licenses. Enter your callsign in the appropriate box on the form that comes up next. Press the “Submit” button. When a listing comes up showing your callsign, notice if there is an entry in the field called “FRN.” If there is, you are already registered.

If you find you are registered but you do not know your ULS password, you can request that your password be reset by going to https://esupport.fcc.gov/password.htm.

Registering is done on-line and is reasonably quick and simple. It entails giving the FCC your Taxpayer Identification Number (which for an individual is your social security number) and connecting it with any license(s) you may now have. To register, go to http://wireless.fcc.gov/uls and look for the “REGISTER CORES/CALL SIGN” link near the top of the page. Just follow the link and follow instructions. If you have trouble, it may be helpful to read the detailed instructions available on the ARRL web site at http://www.arrl.org/universal-licensing-system. You can register with ULS even if you do not yet hold a license. During registration, you will be assigned an “FCC Registration Number” (FRN), a 10-digit number. When you attend a test session, you can enter this number in lieu of your social security number on the application form.


FINDING OUT YOUR NEW CALL

In December of 1994 the FCC adopted new rules that allow a newly-licensed operator to get on the air as soon as a callsign has been issued. Previously, a new licensee could not operate until his printed license arrived by mail. If you have recently passed the test for a new license or an upgrade, you can find out your new callsign and start operating as soon as it has been issued. Start checking about five days after the exam session. Here are ways to check:
  1. Check the FCC's Universal Licensing System (ULS) database at http://wireless.fcc.gov/uls and follow the “search license” link. Select “By Licensee Name” in the pulldown for the type of search. Enter your last name, a comma, and your first name. This site is a bit more trouble to use than other sites on the World Wide Web, but it will show the results sooner than the others after an application is granted.
  2. If your test session was one of the ones sponsored by UARC, check www.xmission.com/~uarc/Exams for a link to your test session. This page will show the progress of the session and results when available.
  3. Check the ARRL's License Data Search at www.arrl.org/fcc/fcclook.php3, following the instructions to enter your name.
  4. Check the callsign server (see below) maintained by the University of Arkansas at Littlerock and search using your name and state. If you include your middle initial, do not include a period. http://callsign.ualr.edu/
  5. Check the callsign database maintained by the publishers of the "QRZ" CD-ROM. Enter your first and last names exactly as they were entered on your application form. http://www.qrz.com/i/names.html
  6. Call the FCC at (888) 225-5322.
  7. Call the ARRL at (860) 594-0300 between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. Mountain time.
