FCC Retires Old “CORES” Registration System

If you’ve been licensed for more than six years, you will probably want to update your FCC CORES (COmmission REgistration System) file to move it to the commission’s updated system. The ARRL Letter reports that use of the new system is now mandatory and that the legacy system was retired as of July 15. This is the system that keeps track of your licensing records and issues your FRN, or FCC Registration Number, without which you can’t do business with the FCC’s computers. The updated system may be accessed at <https://apps.fcc.gov/cores/userLogin.do>.
