Good morning,

Need advise and/or were to look, as my current queries are coming up blank.   I am moving overseas as a military member and taking my equipment (yes approved and license is legal in Italy). Question: what address do I use to update the FCC? Military PO Box or permanent military address (parents house in FL)?  Currently it is listed with my current rental.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

The only requirement is that you can receive mail at the address. Your parents home is probably the best provided that they will forward any mail from the FCC to you. That's what I did for several years in the military.

ยง97.23   Mailing address.

Each license grant must show the grantee's correct name and mailing address. The mailing address must be in an area where the amateur service is regulated by the FCC and where the grantee can receive mail delivery by the United States Postal Service. Revocation of the station license or suspension of the operator license may result when correspondence from the FCC is returned as undeliverable because the grantee failed to provide the correct mailing address.

When I was stationed in Okinawa, which is where I received my US Novice and Tech licences, I was able to use my APO address.

I was USAF,  stationed in Germany when I took my test there and got my license there. Since HOR (home of record) was Virginia, I was assigned a "4" in my callsign. That's what my paper license said when I received it so I continued to use my HOR as my mailing adx till I returned and notified the FCC otherwise.

I would use the address on whatever "state" drivers license you are carrying.  For me, that meant I used my parents address.  I never had any issues about that for 20 yrs...

If you are on active duty, your APO address is your current mailing address.  Parents', friends, relatives, etc might work if you know for sure they will forward the mail to you, since the APO address will change every time your place of deployment changes.
