My Marine Radio Operator Permit (MP), was issued on 01/31/05 and has
an expiration date of 01/31/10. Checking the FCC website I found this:
[I]Term of License,[/I]
[I]An MP is issued for the holder’s lifetime. (Prior to March 25, 2008, [/I]
[I]the license term for an MP was five years. Any holder of an MP that [/I]
[I]expired prior to March 25, 2008, must still file an application to [/I]
[I]renew the permit within the five-year grace period after expiration.)[/I]
Reading this indicates that this license is now a lifetime license
and does not need to be renewed if it expires after March 25, 2008, as
mine does. Is my understanding correct? Also, will I need to send in
for a license that does not show an expiration date?
Thank you for your help, your advice is always appreciated.
