Price change Listing/Table


Recommended Posts

Is there a current listing at the FCC we can look at and see what the current status is on Licensee fees?  I find, finding any information on the FCC web site like looking for dog crap in the high grass.  Lucky for me I guess, I haven't stepped in any yet...

Several Jeep sites insist the fee has dropped but I can't find it.  One poster here even complained of just recently paying the 70 dollars so I conclude the other sites are incorrect but a FCC chart might be better proof.

As of yesterday, the fee has not yet dropped..

Nobody, apparently not even the FCC knows when it ever will, but the latest rumors/guess/hopes/dreams suggest sometime in 2022..

And no, AFAIK, you will not find anything in the multi-million dollar dumpster-fire that is the FCC website that will tell you anything about the what current status is for the changes.

It cost every one of us 2 cents per day to buy our GRMS license from the FCC; how long should you wait for it to cost 1 cent per day?!?

Many of those people that are waiting for that huge-price decrease are the same ones that will drive 20 miles out of their way and burn $4.00 in fuel to save  $0.02  per gallon at the gas station..

I got my license a week ago at the $70 rate.

I know why, and I'm not happy about it. I couldn't let that be a deal breaker, though. I need GMRS for Jeep overland forays. CB is out. I am intrigued by the, proposed, new no license 11 meter (CB) w/ FM.

Thank you for the sharpe description of the site and confirmation on the price decrease.

W1AW bulletin, FCC fees unlikely to go up until next year:
ARLB021 FCC Application Fees Unlikely to Go into Effect Until 2022
The schedule of FCC amateur radio application fees likely will not
go into effect before 2022. FCC staff confirmed during a recent
virtual meeting with Volunteer Examiner Coordinators (VECs) that the
agency is still working on the necessary changes to the Universal
Licensing System (ULS) software and other processes and procedures
that must be in place before it starts collecting fees from amateur
applicants. Earlier this year, the FCC said it would not start
collecting fees from amateur applicants before this Summer. The new
estimate is that the fees won't go into effect until early next
year.
Once it's effective, the $35 application fee will apply to new,
modification (upgrade and sequential call sign change), renewal, and
vanity call sign applications. All fees will be per application.
Administrative update applications, such as those to change a
licensee's name, mailing, or email address, will be exempt from
fees. ARRL VEC manager Maria Somma, AB1FM, said Volunteer Examiner
(VE) teams will not face the burden of collecting the $35 fee.
"Once the FCC application fee takes effect, new and upgrade
applicants will pay the exam session fee to the VE team as usual,
but they'll pay the $35 application fee directly to the FCC using
the FCC Pay Fees system," she explained. When the FCC receives the
examination information from the VEC, it will email a link with
payment instructions to each successful candidate who then will have
10 days from the date of the email to pay.
The FCC Pay Fees system can be accessed at,
After the fee is paid and the FCC has processed an application,
examinees will receive a second email from the FCC with a link to
their official license. The link will be good for 30 days. Licensees
also will be able to view, download, and print official license
copies by logging into their FCC ULS account. The FCC no longer
provides printed licenses.
Licensees can log into the ULS with their 10-digit FRN (FCC
Registration Number) and password at any time to view and manage
their license and application, print their license, and update
anything in their FCC license record, including adding an email
address.
FEE SCHEDULE:
INDIVIDUALS -
$35 FEE: New, modification (upgrade and sequential call sign
change), renewal, and vanity call sign applications. All fees will
be per application.
NO FEE: Administrative updates, such as a change of name, mailing or
email address, or license cancellation.
AMATEUR RADIO CLUBS -
$35 FEE: New, renewal, trustee change, and vanity call sign
applications. All fees will be per application.
NO FEE: Administrative updates, such as a change of name, mailing or
email address, or license cancellation.
NNNN

If you are holding your breath for the $35 GMRS fee, you better have big lungs, it will happen at the same time ham fees are implemented and not before.
