How to Register for your FRN

In this guide:

Before getting your ham radio license, you must first register for your FRN. What is an FRN? An FRN, or FCC Registration Number, is a ten digit number that identifies your business dealings with the FCC. The FCC requires a permanent address, so they can reach you if need be. Although you can register by mail, it is advised that you do the process online as it is much simpler and gets a faster response.

1. Visit the link: https://apps.fcc.gov/coresWeb/publicHome.do
