FCC CORES Registration Instructions


The FCC has taken great strides to make the 
COmission REgistration System (CORES) and the Universal Licensing System (ULS) easy to use and has devoted a section of their website to the Amateur Radio Service.

Register in CORES (COmission REgistration System) and receive an FRN (Federal Registration Number).  To conduct business with the FCC, you must register through FCC CORES and be assigned an FRN. This number will be used to uniquely identify you in all transactions with the FCC.

View the FCC web page New Users guide to ULS for step by step instructions on the registration process or the Commission Registration System Video Tutorials page for videos that help guide CORES users through a variety of situations.

For assistance, submit a help request on the FCC’s Support Services page or call FCC at 877-480-3201 (Mon.-Fri. 8 a.m.-6 p.m. ET).
