I've updated my name, callsign, or QTH and my radios are still display my old information?
radioID.net maintains NONE of these systems, only the databases.
it is up to these individual systems, tools, ect to pull updates, and is beyond our control.

Upload a copy of your actual license or wallet card, screenshots of the FCC database, "Reference Copy", QRZ, ect are not sufficient.

To report a silent key, please submit a ticket with a URL link to the obituary.

You can reuse IDs for radios/subscribers that are not on the air at the same time. A mobile and base radio can have the same ID.
If you only use a mobile in the car and a portable and home you can use the same ID.
Most people will only need 1 ID, they are not an infinite resource, please do not self-assign multiple ID's unless you have a legitimate need.

Hotspots: **** MMDVM, DV4MINI, openSPOT, DVMEGA, and all other hotspot type devices do NOT require a separate ID, use an existing ID only, check the hotspot tab on your account dashboard, do NOT request an ID for them ****
If you own more then one hotspot, use your personal ID number and add a 2 digit suffix, example: Radio ID 3020111, use 302011101, 302011102, ect.
NEVER operate multiple hotspot within range of each other on the same frequency even with different ID's. This will create serious network issues in most cases.
Hotspots do not require repeater ID's.
