Why can't I register? My GMRS callsign was just assigned.

Due to the way the FCC notifies third-party websites, such as ours, of changes to its internal databases, we are usually 24-48 hours behind the FCC website. The FCC provides a full database on a weekly basis, along with daily "catch-up" files that show the new and updated licenses. However, these are showing updates from the previous day or longer.

Also, occasionally there are issues with the database files not being properly updated which further delays the license information from being felt by our system.

The best time to check for the license updates is after 1pm ET, as we usually have received our daily update by then. If you search for your callsign on our website and it comes up as valid, then you are all set and will be able to register.
