Effective April 19, 2022 the Amateur Radio vanity call sign application fee will be $35
When the FCC first opened the Vanity Call Sign System in 1998, the original fee was set at $50.00 and has been increased and decreased over time. In a typical fiscal year, the FCC has collected on the order of $250,000 in vanity call sign application fees. Congress has mandated that the FCC collect nearly $340 million in regulatory fees from all services in fiscal year 2015.
Obtaining station call signs of your choice is a service of the W5YI Group and we have processed thousands of them for the Amateur community. Amateurs may handle the process themselves through the FCC's website or you can let us handle the application. I takes the FCC 18-20 days to process vanity applications and grant a new vanity call sign.
