Good Morning fellow ARRL members:
Once again, we have received a clarification of FCC’s ruling  MD
Docket No. 20-270 . 
As detailed in the latest ARRL letter, the $35 fee will NOT apply to
license upgrades. 
It will only apply to new licenses being issued and renewals of an
existing license. 
Upgrades from Technician to General or Extra and upgrades from General
to Extra will NOT carry a fee. Becoming a VE will not carry any fee
because it is not an FCC action. 
ARRL Letter may be found at
http://www.arrl.org/arrlletter/?issue=2022-04-01 . 
Sorry for the confusion. 
73,
