The FCC regulatory fee associated with Amateur Radio Vanity call signs is no longer required.

Beginning Thursday, September 3, 2015, applicants will be able to file all vanity applications (new and renewal) without having to pay a regulatory fee. FCC decided earlier this year to eliminate the regulatory fee component for Amateur Radio vanity call signs because their costs exceed the amount collected in fees.

However, while the requirement to pay a regulatory fee for vanity call sign applications will end on September 3, prospective vanity applicants now will have to wait until after 8am on September 8 to file an application for an available call sign because of the FCC shut down.
