SB QST ARL ARLB007
ARLB007 FCC Not Yet Collecting $35 Application Fee

The FCC Part 97 rules establishing a new $35 amateur radio
application fee go on the books on April 19, but the FCC won't start
collecting the fee "until the requisite notice has been provided to
Congress, the FCC's information technology systems and internal
procedures have been updated, and the Commission publishes notice(s)
in the Federal Register announcing the effective date of such
rules."

When effective, the fee will apply to new, modification (upgrade and
sequential call sign change), renewal, and vanity call sign
applications, as well as applications for a special temporary
authority (STA) or a rule waiver. Fees will be collected per
application. The FCC exempted from the fee applications for
administrative updates, such as a change of mailing or email
address. The FCC proposed a schedule of application and other fees
for all services last year.
