Go to http://www.fcc.gov/e-file/

I filled out the online app in minutes, paid $50 by credit card and had the license in the mail in less than a week. I believe the code for the license is RR or RP.

Complete waste of $50.00 but at some point you will need it so plan ahead. Most of the carriers will want to see that you have one. Easy process and great way to donate $50.00 to such a worthy cause.:D
