Here is how to change/add your email address on the FCC website.

Log into:  

1.     Once you log in and get to the License Manager screen look on the left sidebar. 2.     Under My License is an option to Update License.
3.     On the Select Licenses screen select all in the Filter by Radio Service box (or select just your call sign), 
4.     Then click the Add button between the two boxes. Now click the Select All button in the Licenses to Update box.
5.     Scroll down and click the small Continue button.
6.     On the next screen (Applicant Questions) click the small continue button.
7.     On the next screen (Licensee Information) make the change to your email address or add it if missing. (Note: see below if no changes needed) Go to the next screen (Summary). 8.     Verify the License Information part and click on CONTINUE TO CERTIFY.
9.     On the next screen (Certification) scroll down and fill in the fields and then click SUBMIT APPLICATION. For the Title field I put “Mr.”.

If you see information is already correct:

  1. If your information is already correct and you make no changes, you will get the following message. “You must change at least one item on an Update application.”      
  2. You can quit the application (top right area) and saved uncompleted application will be automatically deleted after 30 days.  
  3. If you really want to delete the started application, log out and then log back in. At this point you can delete the uncompleted application that you started.

Once submitted it will take a while to become effective. You can check on the  FCC web page (  to see when it does become effective, though I suspect you will also receive an  email.

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. In addition, you will need an active email address.
