FCC Investigating Amateur Radio, Commercial Application Processing Glitch
The FCC information technology staff is continuing to look into why the Universal Licensing System (ULS) Electronic Batch Filing (EBF) system has stopped processing at least some - and perhaps all - Amateur Radio exam session files and applications. The stoppage, which began on June 28th, initially affected the handling of all Amateur Radio Volunteer Examiner Coordinator (VEC) and commercial license applications,
Resolving the problem has been escalated to Priority 1 at the FCC, and resources have been reprioritized to
address the issue. As of July 6th , the ARRL VEC had more than 900 applications and nearly 275 exam sessions in the queue and awaiting FCC processing.
