W5YI Licensing Services
Everyone should be aware that VEC services, apart from initial license testing, are provided as a concierge or convenience service. This is because once licensed, all interaction with the FCC can be done by the licensees themselves at the FCC site. This includes renewals, address changes, and name changes, i.e., the vast majority of VEC activities. There really is a lot that you can accomplish on your own at the FCC website, and we encourage everyone to go there and get signed up for a login account.
The purpose of the VEC concierge services was to streamline the process for those who may have difficulty navigating the FCC's somewhat complex website. Fortunately, things have improved a bit over the years, and now nearly anyone can successfully self-serve at the FCC website. In many cases, this is faster than using a VEC, and there is no fee for routine updates. Only the 10-year license itself exacts a fee at the FCC for amateurs. You can even get them to send you a paper copy of your license if you find and check the right box.
