Masks are optional, but recommended.  Disposable Masks and Hand Sanitizer will be available at the testing site if needed.

All payments are CASH only!  Credit cards no longer accepted.

Please use entrance on Oak Street.  There will be a sign on the door that says: "Amateur Radio Exams"

Items to bring with you:

  1. $15.00 exam fee.  Cash only, exact amount preferred.
  2. Number 2 Pencil and a black ink pen.
  3. A copy of your current FCC license (if you have one)
  4. Two pieces of Identification (at least one photo)
  5. Your FRN Number.  If this is an upgrade, your FRN number is on your license.

All new applicants and upgrades MUST have a valid Email Address and a FCC Registration Number (FRN) in order to obtain their new license.  If you are upgrading, you already have an FRN number.  That number can be found on your current license.

Instructions for obtaining an FRN number can be found on the ARRL Universal Licensing System page  If this is an upgrade, your new license will arrive via email with a link to a PDF copy of your license.

If you are obtaining your first license, the email will contain a link to an FCC page where you have to pay the new $35 application fee that went into effect on April 19th.  The link will have payment instructions for each qualifying candidate. The candidate will have 10 calendar days, from the date of the application file number being issued, to pay. After the fee is paid, and the FCC has processed an application, examinees will receive a second email from the FCC with a link to their official license or, in very rare instances, an explanation for why the application was dismissed or denied. The link will be valid for 30 days.

Please arrive at 9:00 am.  Testing will begin after paperwork is completed and we should be finished by 11:00am.
