    I say do it.

    Everything I do with the FCC is through the ULS, and I've never been a paper collector anyway.

    (except of course for my QRZ certs......:rolleyes:......they're beauties......)

    If the FCC wants to go all Electronic... Fine.

    There is one thing I do miss. Would it be too much to ask for the Commission to generate a nice Old Fashioned Extra Class Certificate that a new licensee could download and print?

    This is a significant accomplishment and a nice "Official" looking ticket would go a long way to make your new upgrade feel more important. I received a cheesy-looking one in 1983 but at least it was something.

    Actually even if the FCC does away with it by mail , you may still be able to file by mail though the ARRL VEC .
    So it maybe much ado about nothing .http://www.arrl.org/call-sign-renewals-or-changes

    When you hand over a check you are giving your routing# and account#. Easier to steal $$ from you then using online or credit card.

    I wonder how many on here were licensed before the invention of running water?

    An ever increasing number of those online orders on EBay/ Amazon are being delivered by the USPS.
