Happy Wednesday!

I've been having my FCC amateur radio callsign, KI5FKE, for a week, but when I attempt to update my profile with this information, I receive the message that my callsign is not in RadioReference's database. How often is the database updated/refreshed?

Thanks in advance for your time and assistance!
