Gee. I must be on the Agency's shoot list. I cannot recall ever getting any kind of up-date via mail (although I do get notices from the CG about our documentation every year). Usually I renew all our registrations via the Agency's web-site every January as a matter of course but overlooked the registration of our PLB 100 this year.
