SB QST ARL ARLB012
ARLB012 FCC Okays Changes to Amateur Radio Exam Credit, Test
Administration, Emission Type Rules

In a wide-ranging Report and Order (R&O) released June 9 that takes
various proceedings into consideration, the FCC has revised the
Amateur Service Part 97 rules to grant credit for written
examination elements 3 (General) and 4 (Amateur Extra) to holders of
"expired licenses that required passage of those elements." The FCC
will require former licensees - those falling outside the 2-year
grace period - to pass Element 2 (Technician) in order to be
relicensed, however. The Commission declined to give examination
credit to the holder of an expired Certificate of Successful
Completion of Examination (CSCE) or to extend its validity to the
holder's lifetime.

The Report and Order may be found on the web in PDF format at,
