The FCC has announced that the new Amateur Radio vanity call sign
regulatory fee of $20.80 for the 10-year license term will go into

continue to pay the $16.30 fee per vanity call sign application
received by FCC until the new fee goes into effect. The FCC says it
expects to collect close to $162,000 from 7800 Amateur Radio vanity
call sign applicants during Fiscal Year 2004. See the FCC's annual
