ARLB087 FCC notifications begin

The FCC has begun mailing notices of upcoming amateur license
expirations.  Those amateurs whose licenses would expire in December
1995 are being sent, by first class mail, a computer-generated Form
610-R ''short form.''

The Commission's Gettysburg facility expects to mail more than 5000
such notices this week, covering expirations from December 1 to
December 20, 1995.

The new Form 610-R may be signed, dated, and returned to the FCC to
renew the license, provided that no changes (such as address) are
needed.  It will be permissible to correct misspelled words.  For
other changes along with renewal, it will be necessary to file a
regular FCC Form 610.

For some time the ARRL has been sending license expiration notices
as a free membership service.  That service will be discontinued
once the new FCC program is established.

There is no monetary fee for an amateur license renewal.
