If you don’t already have an FCC FRN number please go to the following website to obtain one. It is now a requirement for all amateur radio operators.
“An FRN, or FCC registration number, is a 10-digit number that is assigned to a business or individual registering with the FCC. “
The FCC is requiring this as they want to stop asking for people’s Social Security Numbers, which is what they have required for many years.
