In an email from ARRL headquarters today, the following information was recieved regarding the collection of licensing and renewal fees that the FCC is imposing in all amateur radio operators starting in the Spring of 2022.
There will be a website online set up to collect the fees that have to be completed with the cores registration system now online. Once a FRN (federal registration number) is issued the new amatuer or renewal will have 10 days to input payment into the online website yet to come online.
Changes such as address change will not be charged.
The FCC will let the ARRL know when their fee collection site is live.
