Email Address Requirement Effective June 29, 2021 - all amateur radio licensees and candidates will have to provide the FCC with an email address on applications.
If no email address is included, the FCC may dismiss the application as defective. The FCC is fully transitioning to electronic correspondence and will no longer print or provide wireless licensees with hard-copy authorizations or registrations by mail. More info: FCC-20-126A1.pdf
