FCC to Mandate E-Mail Addresses on Future Applications

Starting in the middle of next year, all FCC applications – including those from amateurs – will need to include the applicant's e-mail address. It's the next step, says the ARRL Letter, in shifting fully from paper to electronic communications. 

Once the rule takes effect (the exact date wasn't set when this was posted), applications may be dismissed as "defective" if an e-mail address is not included, and FCC reserves the right to revoke or suspend licenses if e-mails from the Commission are returned as undeliverable.
