We are trying our best to open things up and get our club back to some sense of normality in a safe and responsible manner. We politely ask that when attending our events, please bring and wear a face covering if you are not fully vaccinated. (mask, bandana), observe distancing, abide by any other special restrictions placed on the event, and of course please stay home if you think you might be sick or exposed to someone who is.
We have scheduled test sessions for:
Saturday December 11, at 9:00am at the Museum of Radio and Technology. Walk-ins accepted! Pre-registration OK but not required. (Walk-in policy subject to change with government covid policy for indoor meeting places)
Important - New candidates wishing to test must have a FCC Registration Number (FRN) before arriving at the test session. The FCC will no longer accept a Social Security Number in lieu of a FRN. If you don't have a FRN, you can register for one here. https://apps.fcc.gov/cores/userLogin.do
If you already have a FRN, do not apply for another one. Use the one you have.
The FCC now also requires that all candidates provide an e-mail address on their application.
E-mail [email protected] to pre-register for a seat at the exam. Please include you phone number.
You will be required to bring and wear a face covering if you are not fully vaccinated. (mask, bandana)
Please bring your own pens and pencils.
Now for the usual details:
The standard test fee is $15.00
You will need a picture ID.
You will need to have your FRN with you. (see impotant notice above)
If you are upgrading, bring a copy of your current license with your FRN number. If you have a Certificate of Successful Completion (CSCE) which has not yet been acted upon be the FCC, bring it.
If you wish to use a calculator, you are welcome to do so, but must bring a traditional calc, as cell phone calcs are not allowed and must be shut down during testing as per FCC rules.
So there you have it, we're looking forward to hearing from you and seeing you soon!
