AllAmateurs must be registered with the FCC. This is not an option.
If you are not registered when seeking FCC services, the application will be returned without action. You are not required to register until the first time you intend to file an application, however. For most Amateur Radio operators, this will be when you renew or modify your license (that is, change your address, name or call sign, upgrade your class of operator license, or apply for a vanity call sign).
Amateur licensees registered in ULS already have been cross-registered in CORES and issued an FRN by mail. Amateurs can check to see if they have a Federal Registration Number (FRN) electronically via a ULS License Search. Many Internet call sign servers, including ARRL's, also can provide this information.
All amateurs who register in CORES will be issued an FRN. Amateurs then should use their FRN in place of their Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN-typically an individual's Social Security Number) when filing applications with the FCC. New or upgrade license applicants not previously registered in ULS will be registered automatically in both CORES and ULS when they provide a TIN on a license application filed through a Volunteer Examiner Coordinator or on a form submitted directly to the FCC. An easy ways to determine if you have already registered, or if you have been auto-registered is to check the CORES and ULS databases. Your FRN should appear in both.
Although both ULS and CORES will contain a licensee's FRN, updating information in one system will not update the other. For amateurs, CORES registration replaces ULS ''TIN/Call Sign'' registration, but the ULS will remain the Amateur Service licensing database, and only ULS will associate an individual with a particular call sign and FRN. Now that CORES and FRN's are mandatory, those registering in ULS will be redirected to CORES registration when filing electronically.
The FCC has discontinued issuing an Assigned Taxpayer Identification Number, ATIN's, which the FCC had been issuing to applicants ineligible to obtain a Social Security Number, such as foreign applicants and club station licensees. Applicants who had been using ATINs must now register in CORES. CORES will offer exemptions to amateur clubs and to foreign entities not holding a TIN/SSN.
All passwords will be maintained in the CORES database. Amateurs also may use FCC Form 160 to register manually in CORES, and those doing so will be mailed a CORES password for on-line access. Once the FRN is obtained, amateurs registering manually must complete an FCC Form 606 to associate a call with the FRN.university of missouri university of hawaiʻi at mānoa university of akron organize management wingate university ave maria university roger williams university montana state university carlow university ryerson university pain management specialist national university boston university acceptance rate new mexico state university waynesburg university clark atlanta university queen's university chatham university university of nebraska lincoln furman university university village ashford university student portal whitworth university yale school of management ave maria university temple university hospital university of british columbia stetson university humboldt state university bolivia university accident rutgers university new brunswick depaul university university of waterloo university of the people california state university university of massachusetts amherst pittsburg state university methodist university lock haven university austin peay state university university of washington acceptance rate california state university west chester university rushmore loan management services husson university university of cumberlands university of nebraska-lincoln wingate university yonsei university full sail university kettering university university of tulsa wilkes university university of san francisco belmont university university of north carolina at chapel hill princeton university archegos capital management tarleton state university brenau university university of oregon spring arbor university salisbury university bni university cumberland university university of ashford social media management risk management definition southern virginia university henderson state university university of michigan credit union western governors university hawaiiana management muskingum university university of vermont university of mississippi university of cincinnati missouri state university washburn university lee university jacksonville university university of minnesota university of houston clear lake john hopkins university drexel university university of washington acceptance rate university of south florida dominican university biola university blackboard ohio university monsters university characters bradley university liberty property management whitworth university southeastern university waste management jobs stanford university central michigan university university of new mexico university of maryland baltimore nova southeastern university oakwood university ohio dominican university project management methodologies old dominion university maryville university john brown university metropolitan state university northeastern university university credit union concord university north carolina state university madonna university university of arizona global campus university of california davis truman state university university of mississippi prairie view a&m university university of mississippi west coast university blackboard northeastern state university university of florida acceptance rate doane university university of houston downtown washington university id.sonyentertainmentnetwork.com id/management/ university of north carolina wilmington linfield university university of illinois at chicago oklahoma christian university indiana university of pennsylvania lyon property management millersville university university of north texas san francisco state university eastern oregon university university of south carolina football chamberlain university student portal abilene christian university
