As a result of opposition by the Ham Radio Community and others to the FCC's recent license fee proposals, the FCC has lowered the proposed fee from $50 to $35. Not the perfect answer many had hoped for but a direct improvement. Details have not been finalized by the FCC, and we are told that we will get 30 days notice before such new rules are implemented.
What this tells me, is that if you want to get a new license, upgrade your current license, or apply for a vanity call sign, now is the time to do it as you still have a chance to do so before the $35 fees go into effect.
