      Before it expires, as you can not use an expired certificate to request
      a replacement. It's a simple thing to do with a current certificate and
      a right pain in the arse without.

      The replacement will be good for three years. Hope that makes it a bit
      less annoying.

        I did send one for one of three certificates so maybe that one will get messed up.

        >>> As Norm W3IZ explained in his response to your message several hours ago, the system used to issue Callsign Certificates is experiencing difficulties.

        It would have been helpful if the instructions they publish pointed this out including that it is a manual operation.

        >>>I have updated the documentation to note that renewal requires ARRL staff action.

        I have not the faintest idea why they cannot automate this.

        >>>A callsign issued to one operator can later be issued to a different operator. Does that help?
