There are two types of FCC licenses that can be downloaded from the ULS:
- A Reference Copy can be generated by anybody, and has the text “Reference Copy” printed across the background. It is not accepted as a form of identification for RHR registration.
- An Official Copy can only be generated by the license holder, and has the text “Official Copy” printed across the background. This license is required for registration as an amateur radio operator with RHR.
How to Download an Official Copy
- Log in to the FCC ULS using your FCC Registration Number (FRN) and password.
- Select Download Electronic Authorizations.
Select your callsign under My Authorizations, then click ADD ►. The license will move over to Authorizations to Download. Finally, click DOWNLOAD.
