If you don’t already have an FCC FRN number, or forgot what yours is, please go to the following website to obtain one. It is now a requirement for all amateur radio operators.
Here is the link: https://apps.fcc.gov/coresWeb/publicHome.do
“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. In addition, you will need an active email address.
