“Paperless” Amateur Radio License Policy
Beginning February 17, the FCC will no longer automatically mail a printed copy of your Amateur Radio License. The Commission has maintained for some time now that the official Amateur Radio license authorization is the electronic record that exists in its Universal Licensing System (ULS). However, they have continued to mail a hard copy of the license.
