    Several months ago I upgraded my ticket to General at my local club exam date. My upgrade appeared in the FCC database shortly thereafter.

    Yesterday I was downloading a copy of my license to get authorization for Echolink and noticed that expiration date on my license is still 2020, which is the original expiration of my Tech license.

    Is this correct? Does the expiration date not reset/update when you upgrade?

    When you upgrade, it is not a renewal. The expiration date is linked to the last renewal, not the last modification, so this is normal.

    Congrats on General! I recommend you work on Extra soon, before the technical stuff from General gets too fuzzy.

    Thanks for the info. Roger on the Extra upgrade, studying in progress...
