Please contact Todd a week in advance if you want to take a test before one of our meetings so that we can make sure that we have VE team present.  

Meetings are the second Tuesday of each month

No tests given in December
What should you bring with you?

  • You will need to apply for an FRN number prior to testing.  You can do this by going to the FCC website.  for tutorial videos on the FCC website visit Commission Registration System Video Tutorials
  • You will need to bring your legal photo identification.
  • If upgrading bring a copy of your license
  • Bring your Fee.

*The cost for the test is $10.  The $10 cost covers all test levels taken at that exam session provided that the examinee passes the previous level license exam.  (So it is possible to take the tech, general and extra exams for $10 given each prior level is passed).
