For those that recently renewed their vanity license:

I just finished the vanity license renewal process through the FCC site.

I was curious.. After it gets processed through the FCC, do we get a new/updated paper license (wallet/frameable) sent to us, or do we keep using our old disintegrating one?


Thanks!

You will get a printout of the new license record, showing the new expiration date. It usually arrives within two weeks or so.

Note that the paper copy is not your license--the actual license is the database entry on the ULS. So your new license already exists, whether or not the paper has been printed. The paper copy is just a record of the license.

I received a paper copy when I renewed my license in Nov. 2013, but not when I moved a couple of months later.  The ULS record is correct, though.

Thanks!

I understood the "paper copy" point. I could have been a little more clear. Smiley
My hope was that I would receive a fresh copy to stuff in my wallet.
