FCC Universal Licensing System [ULS]

FCC Logo

The ULS is a database of the FCC to track information on all radio licensing. In general, you will probably be interested in the 'Amateur Radio Service', but all the commercial stations are there as well. You can take some time and search till you find whatever you desire.

To get an 'Official Copy' of your Ham Radio License, follow these steps:

The FCC stopped sending paper copies of licenses for radio amateurs. However many wish to have a 'proper' copy to display. You can also use this database to check on your new license or upgrade status or to just 'search around' the database! The following is the process to get a copy of your license.

  1. Go to FCC ULS system.
  2. In the box on their form just type in your hamcall and hit 'enter'. Make sure you are searching "By Call Sign".
  3. When it finds your call it will be a form containing your call displayed as a 'hyperllink', then click the hyperlink for your call.
  4. At the top of the next form {near the top in small print}, click on the "Reference Copy" link.
  5. The ULS will then send your browser a PDF file that contains a reference copy of your license. Download and save to your computer. Write down the downloaded file name.
  6. Find the file that was downloaded and print, email, etc. as you please.
       Hint: Rename the file so you can later locate and use it on your computer easily.

Hint: You an look for "any call sign" in the US system (not just amateur call). Also, change what you are searching on (say a "name").
