HOW TO GET AN F.C.C.  FRN/ CORES #

 

THERE ARE TWO WAYS TO REGISTER WITH THE F.C.C. AND GET YOUR FRN/ CORES #.  THIS NUMBER IS ESSETIALLY YOUR FCC I.D. # AND WILL BE NEEDED FOR ANY APPLICATIONS, RENEWALS, OR FILINGS FROM HERE ON IN.

 

 

1:  INTERNET/ ELECTRONIC FILING:

 

A:   LOG ON TO AND WWW.FCC.GOV SCROLL DOWN THE LEFT HAND SIDE OF THE HOME PAGE.  HERE YOU WILL SEE A BUTTON FOR FRN/CORES REGISTRATION.  CLICK ON IT

 

B:  THE NEXT STEP HAS THREE CHOICES, CLICK ON “REGISTER”

 

C:  THE NEXT STEP ASKS IF THIS IS FOR AN INDIVIDUAL OR A BUSINESS.  IF YOU ARE THE OWNER OF A BOAT/ BUSINESS, THEN REGISTER THIS WAY FOR THE “SHIP RADIO STATION LICENSE”, AND IF YOUR LOOKING TO REGISTER TO RECEIVE A “MARINE RADIO OPERATORS PERMIT” OR SOME OTHER USER LICENSE, THEN REGISTER AS AN INDIVIDUAL.  IT’S GOOD TO KEEP THE TWO SEPARATE.  YOU CAN DO BOTH.

 

D:  FOLLOW THE STEPS AND CONTINUE ON.  IN THE END YOU WILL GET A REGISTRATION (FRN/CORES#) NUMBER.  PRINT THIS FINAL PAGE OUT WITH YOUR ID AND PASSWORD AND KEEP IT WITH YOUR RECORDS.  (THIS IS SOMETHING EASILY FORGOTTEN AND YOUR DEALINGS WITH THE F.C.C. ARE FEW AND FAR BETWEEN.)

 

2:  PAPER FILING:

 

A:   LOG ON TO WWW.FCC.GOV AND SCROLL DOWN THE LEFT HAND SIDE OF THE HOME PAGE.  HERE YOU WILL SE A BUTTON FOR “FORMS”.  CLICK ON IT.

 

B:  GO TO “FORM 160” (CORES REGISTRATION FORM).  PRINT OUT FORM (1 PAGE + 3 DIRECTIONS PAGES), FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS AND MAIL TO INDICATED ADDRESS.  THIS IS FREE AND REQUIRES NO MONEY.
