Re: FCC Rules Change

Interestingly enough, I just went into the system to check my personal information, and it did not accept  my password! (Yes, I used the one I established a year ago when I got it.)  So I had to change it. Seems that the FCC has enhanced its password requirement, now requiring 12 to 15 characters of a mixed variety. My previous password was only eight characters long, and it would not take it. No big deal, but it’s done.

I find that a little humorous since I have been trying to update my new mailing address since we moved back in August. The online system sucks! I have requested "Help" numerous ties and have never even received a response acknowledging my request for help, much less getting the problem solved. Typical bureaucratic BS. If someone has some kind of "insider" connection I sure would appreciate a hint!

On September 16, 2020, the FCC adopted Report and Order FCC 20-126.  This R&O requires that ALL licensees in any radio service administered by the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau (WTB) must have a current e-mail address on file as part of their ULS record.  This includes the Amateur Radio Service.  These new regulations will go into effect 6 months after the R&O is published in the Federal Register.  It has not yet been published.

 

There are changes to 2 sections in Part 97 -- §97.21 & §97.23.

 

The new text of §97.23 reads:

 

§ 97.23 Mailing and e-mail addresses.

Each license grant must show the grantee's correct name, mailing address, and e-mail address. The e-mail address must be an address where the grantee can receive electronic correspondence. Revocation of the station license or suspension of the operator license may result when correspondence from the FCC is returned as undeliverable because the grantee failed to provide the correct e-mail address.

 

The changes to §97.23 are similar in that the words “mailing address” are replaced with the words “mailing and e-mail address” each time that they appear.

 

This new regulation requires that all existing licensees update their ULS record to include a current e-mail address the same as a current mailing address.  This can be done either online or by submitting an application through a VE test session.

FYI and consideration:
I was communicating with a fellow Ham in New Hampshire today, and he mentioned that he will be selling his FT-100D. He said: “It is pretty good cosmetically and works as intended.  I found it to be a nice rig to use.  Will be offering it for $400.00”.

Announcing Amazon Smile for TLARC

David Andrews
 

You may have heard me announce the Amazon Smile program at the November TLARC meeting. In case you didn’t catch it, here are the details.

 

About AmazonSmile

What is AmazonSmile?

AmazonSmile is a simple way for you to support TLARC every time you shop, at no cost to you. AmazonSmile is available at smile.amazon.com on your web browser and can be activated in the Amazon Shopping app for iOS and Android phones. When you shop AmazonSmile, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added benefit that AmazonSmile will donate 0.5% of your eligible purchases to TLARC.

How does AmazonSmile work?

When first visiting smile.amazon.com, customers are prompted to select TLARC as their eligible organization. In order to browse or shop at AmazonSmile, customers must first select TLARC. For eligible purchases through AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to TLARC.

Is there any cost to TLARC or to customers?

No. There is no cost to TLARC or to AmazonSmile customers. The shopping experience is identical to Amazon.com with the added benefit that the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate to TLARC.

Do you charge any administrative fees or take any deduction from the donation amount?

No. TLARC has registered to receive donations and has a valid bank account to which we can route donations. There is no charge to participate and we do not deduct any fees from the donation amount.

 

The direct link to choose TLARC at AmazonSmile is: https://smile.amazon.com/ch/81-0933031
