A renewal can be filed no earlier than 90 days prior to the expiration date of a call sign. To complete a manual renewal of your license the FCC Form 605 (Main Form and/or associated schedules) is required. If you currently do not have an FCC Registration Number (FRN) form 160 would be required. Applications requiring fees will also need to submit form 159. The purpose of the filing will either be Renewal Only “RO” or Renewal/Modification “RM”. Renewal Only will be selected to renew an existing license that has not expired and where no changes in the license are being requested. Renewal/Modification will be selected to renew an existing license and request changes to that license (i.e., address, telephone, email, etc.) For a manual filing the appropriate form can be obtained at FCC Forms
Electronic filers would utilize the Universal Licensing System (ULS)
