I've been "off the air" since about 1990 due to "life constraints", and getting involved with computers in my job at the same time.

Today I wondered if my license was valid, so checked the FCC Bulletin.

K5AWO
Licensee ID: L00268681
License Class: Amateur Extra
FRN: 0003899804
Radio Service: HA
Issue Date: 01/10/2017
Expire Date: 03/20/2027
Date of Last Change: 01/10/2017 (License Renewed)

My question is why does it not show when I was first licensed back in 1958?

Is there a place where that can be found?
Also, was wondering if the dates when you progress through Novice, to General, to Extra Class are recorded?

I skipped the Technician level.
My only interest for the 1st 20 years was CW on the HF bands.

The FCC lost license records in an early 1970s flood,

It is expensive to digitize old paper records accurately.
