The Frederick Amateur Radio Club would love to help you get started on an exciting new adventure. Using the buttons below use the More Info button to learn what the process is to get licensed. For resources on learning how to study to get your license click on the Resources button. Once you are ready to take the test, you can take the test during one of our quarterly free testing sessions or you can typically find a few testing sessions with 50 miles every weekend. We can help you find a location to take your test. If you or someone you know (hint hint) are wanting to get your Amateur Radio license now is the time.More InfoResources
There are a few things you need to know before coming to take the test:
- You need to bring a government issued photo ID. If you do not have a government issued photo ID a birth certificate is acceptable. The photo ID must have your current address on it.
- Your FRN number. If you do not yet have an FRN number from the FCC you can register for free here: http://wireless.fcc.gov/uls/index.htm?job=home. This is important because we do not accept social security numbers on the FCC forms. If you have a pre-registration link, that process will help you get an FRN number.
- Calculator – The simpler the better. We have to approve the calculator and if it is a programmable calculator then we may not accept it. We will also clear out the memory in the calculator.
