Due to the upcoming major REC systems changes and a considerable backlog, we are advising that any requests into REC may encounter a delay. Things will start letting up after the Memorial Day weekend after the IT work is completed, but we anticipate being in this delayed operation for awhile longer. If you have any questions about an FCC policy or operational question, please first check the FAQ on the REC website. Email is the best way to reach us right now. If you are inquiring on an application we are handling, please make sure the 4 digit REC order number is in the subject line. Urgent requests involving filing deadlines, expiring permits and 312(g) related issues will take priority. Thank you for your understanding.
