FCC Goes Paperless, ARRL Predicts Licensing Headaches

FCC “Paperless” Amateur Radio License Policy Goes into Effect on February 17

(Originally posted on ARRL.org 28 Jan 2015)

Starting February 17, the FCC no longer will routinely issue paper license documents to Amateur Radio applicants and licensees. 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), although the FCC has continued to print and mail hard copy licenses. In mid-December the FCC adopted final procedures to provide access to official electronic authorizations, as proposed in WT Docket 14-161 as part of its “process reform” initiatives.

AMSAT AO-7

AMSAT Celebrates 40 Years in Space for AO-7

Special Event Stations Commemorate 70th D-Day anniversary.

Friday, June 6th marks the 70th anniversary of the Allied D- Day landings in Normandy, France.  To commemorate this event the United Kingdom's Vintage and Military Amateur Radio Society is organizing a series of full carrier amplitude modulation nets on 80, 60 and 40 meters for operators of vintage military wireless gear that would have been in use at that time.

These special AM nets will be open to all amateurs and joining stations are encouraged to undertake a little research beforehand, in order to provide a description of how their equipment type was used in Operation Overlord. The schedule times and frequencies for these net operations are 07.00 hours GMT on 3. 615 MHz, 11.00 UTC on 7.143 on MHz and 15.00 hours UTC on 5.317 MHz in those nations where operation on this 5 MHz frequency using full carrier AM is allowed.  More about the sponsoring group is on the web at vmars.org.uk.0
