I noticed that under Dinwiddie County. Vulcan rock plant has two licenses but all details in the license are identical. Is this normal?

Did you check the emission mode? Sometimes a licensee may have two license for one frequency and have different modes or base type. Otherwise it is a double licensing for one frequency.

FRN is different. Who knows, businesses do weird things sometimes. Definitely not the norm.

Those licenses have two different FRN numbers, also WPWE982 was issued in 2012, they requested a modification or new tower that appears was not completed in time and had to apply for a new grant. Looks like when that happened someone screwed up and filed for a new everything including FRN, as well as getting the new grant under the old FRN. Like @GTR8000 said not the norm, just a screw up.

Random notes from reviewing these two licenses.
Two different FRN's. - surprised the Coordinator and/or Radio shop didn't catch that, only need one.

Going to [WAG] guess a Rookie at the Coordinator double billed and filed a renewal and new license application within months of each other.

Not normal, but not out of the ordinary

WPWE982 & WRHF242

My city has three FRNs and the county has four. That's what can happen when you have different companies at different times handling radio licensing.

Yes, that does make sense, One for Fire, One for Police, One for DPW etc

Way back when I handle the EMA licenses for an agency, we had our own FRN and the Fire , Police theirs.
Others have one agency doing it all.

In the ham radio world as a VE we make the point that each applicant or upgrade use the correct FRN if they have one. No need to get a new one if they already have one. I helps to make the FCC processing efficient.
