FRN/FCC FAQ

 

 

 

Getting Ready

To protect your Social Security Number, and help prevent identity theft, the Federal Communications Commission will issue you a Federal Registration Number.

 

You may apply for a FRN before taking your amateur radio license examination. The number issued to you is good for life and for other FCC licenses. We recommend that you apply for it at least 48 hours before your examination day.

 

To register for a FRN, your Social Security Number and a password that you make up will be requested.

 

Let us know the FRN when you pre register for the exam. Bring the printout of the FRN with you on the day of the exam so we can verify the FRN. We would like you to pre register to avoid taking up time at the examination session.

PLEASE GO TO THE FOLLOWING FCC WEB PAGE:

Look it up in the ULS license search If you don稚 know your password (they assign you a password when you get an FRN, but don't tell you what it is) click on the forgot password and then select a security question.
