FCC User Profile and FRN Registration Video

“The Federal Communications Commission will be changing the way new amateur radio applicants register for a FCC Registration Number (FRN)"1—the identification number needed by those who are “doing business” with the Commission (e.g. applying for a radio operator license, paying fees).

The FCC have released a short HOWTO video demonstrating the registration procedure. Please note that e-mail address verification is required when creating an FCC User Profile; applicants will need access to their e-mail account during profile creation.

Other video tutorials for the Updated CORES system have been published on the FCC Commission Registration System (CORES) Video Tutorials page.
