I have been under medically supervised treatment for the past few years. I have been on heavy meds. I presently am showing signs of improvement from cognitive issues which were troubling me. I discovered that my license is expired past the two year renewal period. Is there any way that my license can be salvaged?

To reclaim a license expired more than 2 years one must retake element 2 (Technician). If you were a General or Advanced previously, you will be granted General privileges. If you were an Amateur Extra, you will be granted Extra privileges.

If you were previously licensed as a Tech then not really, because you have to retake the Tech and will be granted Tech privileges. Once you do this however, you can request your old call sign as a vanity and get it back that way.
