  §  97.21   Application for a modified or renewed license grant.

   Link to an amendment published at  85 FR 85532 , Dec. 29, 2020.

   (a) A person holding a valid amateur station license grant:

   (1) Must apply to the FCC for a modification of the license grant as
   necessary to show the correct mailing address, licensee name, club
   name, license trustee name, or license custodian name in accordance
   with § 1.913 of this chapter. For a club or military recreation station
   license grant, the application must be presented in document form to a
   Club Station Call Sign Administrator who must submit the information
   thereon to the FCC in an electronic batch file. The Club Station Call
   Sign Administrator must retain the collected information for at least
   15 months and make it available to the FCC upon request. A Club Station
   Call Sign Administrator shall not file with the Commission any
   application to modify a club station license grant that was submitted
   by a person other than the trustee as shown on the license grant,
   except an application to change the club station license trustee. An
   application to modify a club station license grant to change the
   license trustee name must be submitted to a Club Station Call Sign
   Administrator and must be signed by an officer of the club.

   (2) May apply to the FCC for a modification of the operator/primary
   station license grant to show a higher operator class. Applicants must
   present the administering VEs with all information required by the
   rules prior to the examination. The VEs may collect all necessary
   information in any manner of their choosing, including creating their
   own forms.

   (3) May apply to the FCC for renewal of the license grant for another
   term in accordance with § § 1.913 and 1.949 of this chapter. Application
   for renewal of a Technician Plus Class operator/primary station license
   will be processed as an application for renewal of a Technician Class
   operator/primary station license.

   (i) For a station license grant showing a call sign obtained through
   the vanity call sign system, the application must be filed in
   accordance with § 97.19 of this part in order to have the vanity call
   sign reassigned to the station.

   (ii) For a primary station license grant showing a call sign obtained
   through the sequential call sign system, and for a primary station
   license grant showing a call sign obtained through the vanity call sign
   system but whose grantee does not want to have the vanity call sign
   reassigned to the station, the application must be filed with the FCC
   in accordance with § 1.913 of this chapter. When the application has
   been received by the FCC on or before the license expiration date, the
   license operating authority is continued until the final disposition of
   the application.

   (iii) For a club station or military recreation station license grant
   showing a call sign obtained through the sequential call sign system,
   and for a club station license grant showing a call sign obtained
   through the vanity call sign system but whose grantee does not want to
   have the vanity call sign reassigned to the station, the application
   must be presented in document form to a Club Station Call Sign
   Administrator who must submit the information thereon to the FCC in an
   electronic batch file. The replacement call sign will be selected by
   the sequential call sign system. The Club Station Call Sign
   Administrator must retain the collected information for at least 15
   months and make it available to the FCC upon request.

   (b) A person whose amateur station license grant has expired may apply
   to the FCC for renewal of the license grant for another term during a 2
   year filing grace period. The application must be received at the
   address specified above prior to the end of the grace period. Unless
   and until the license grant is renewed, no privileges in this part are
   conferred.

   (c) Except as provided in paragraph (a)(3) of this section, a call sign
   obtained under the sequential or vanity call sign system will be
   reassigned to the station upon renewal or modification of a station
   license.
