I submitted an application for a vanity call sign a little over 18 days ago, and it's marked "pending". I presume that it will be processed soon, but the FCC's ULS search page is being slow and glitchy. Will the FCC e-mail me when the application is approved or rejected?
As of 2021, the FCC will send an e-mail to your address on file when your application is approved with a link to your updated license PDF (but no details in the e-mail body itself). It will be sent later on the day your batch is processed; mine was sent at 17:55 ET.
