The short way up to the peak has been washed out so now the only way is to go the long way. Here are a few pics of the washout…

FCC to Require Email Address on Applications Starting on June 29, 2021
12/31/2020
Effective on June 29, 2021, amateur radio licensees and candidates must
provide the FCC with an email address on all applications. If no email
address is included, the FCC may dismiss the application as
“defective.”

On September 16, the FCC adopted a Report and Order (R&O) in WT Docket
19-212 on “Completing the Transition to Electronic Filing, Licenses
and Authorizations, and Correspondence in the Wireless Radio
Services.” The R&O was published on December 29 in the Federal
Register. The FCC has already begun strongly encouraging applicants to
provide an email address. Once an email address is provided, the FCC
will email a link to an official electronic copy of the license grant.
An official copy will also be available at any time by accessing the
licensee’s password-protected Universal Licensing System (ULS)
account.

Licensees can log into the ULS License Manager System with their FRN and
password at any time and update anything in their FCC license record,
including adding an email address. For questions or password issues,
call the CORES/FRN Help Line, (877) 480-3201 (Monday – Friday, 1300
– 2300 UTC) or reset the password on the FCC website.

The only way to refrain from providing an email address on an
application would be to submit a request to waive the new rule,
providing justification for the request. (The FCC would not be obliged
to grant such a request.)

Under Section 97.21 of the new rules, a person holding a valid amateur
radio station license “must apply to the FCC for a modification of the
license grant as necessary to show the correct mailing and email
address, licensee name, club name, license trustee name, or license
custodian name.” For a club or military recreation station license,
the application must be presented in document form to a club station
call sign administrator who must submit the information to the FCC in an
electronic batch file.

Under new Section 97.23, each license must show the grantee’s correct
name, mailing address, and email address. “The email address must be
an address where the grantee can receive electronic correspondence,”
the amended rule will state. “Revocation of the station license or
suspension of the operator license may result when correspondence from
the FCC is returned as undeliverable because the grantee failed to
provide the correct email address.”

2021 Board members elected

News Flash!

Because of the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic the 2020 annual picnic was canceled. Because of this the Parks department contacted us just recently asking what we want to do with the reservation fee that has been in the account for us. We went ahead and set that money to be used for our 2021 reservation of the annual picnic. The date you need to put on your calendar is July 24, 2021. More details will follow as they are formed!
