Who is eligible for this license...
These licenses are in the FCC's Industrial/Business Pool. Eligibility is open to organizations or persons engaged in educational, philanthropic, ecclesiastical, healthcare, or certain types of associations. A license covers the entire organization and all it's members/ employees.
To received this reduced fee, the FCC requires an IRS 501c Letter as proof of your non-profit status. They no longer accept state issued letters.
Did you know, a single frequency can be used across many channels. Through the use of privacy codes (also called CTCSS codes, PL tones, or DCS) these sub-audible tones create unique talk-paths on each channel - even when using just one frequency!
The price includes all FCC fees, which we pay on your behalf. Because of this, once we receive your completed questionnaire a refund cannot be provided. All licenses are granted at the discretion of the FCC.
