ARLB027 A Reminder - FCC Universal Licensing System Down for
Maintenance September 2-8

The FCC Universal Licensing System (ULS) and other FCC website
public applications are down for maintenance and will be unavailable
from 2200 UTC on Wednesday, September 2, until 1200 UTC on Tuesday,
September 8. The outage also will affect the Electronic Comment
Filing System (ECFS) and the Electronic Document Management System
(EDOCS).

During the ULS outage, it will not be possible to file any Amateur
Radio applications, including examination session documents, or
conduct any license or application searches. Also, while the
requirement to pay a regulatory fee for Amateur Radio vanity call
sign applications will end on September 3, prospective vanity
applicants now will have to wait until after 1200 UTC on September 8
to file an application for an available call sign.

The FCC has told ARRL that the approximately 18-day vanity call sign
waiting period will remain in place "for now."

The FCC's August 20 Public Notice has complete details on the
planned maintenance outage. It can be found on the web at,
