ATTENTION: All testing session applicants.
The Universal License System (ULS) was brought back online and all testing results just processed. You should either:
1. Receive your FCC payment link to your email address given on the Form 605 you filled out.
2. Your upgrade should be reflected on your FCC ULS record.
Based on the recent issues the ULS has experienced, it could take up to a day or so for this to happen.
New licensees watch for the payment link. You have 10 working days to make payment. We recommend you pay when you receive the email. The call sign is typically issued within a day or two of payment.
