We ask everyone to register prior to the hamfest so paperwork can be prepared in advance. This request is due to the anticipated number of examinees
Only examinees and the VE Team are allowed in the room during exams. The only exceptions are for minors accompanied by an adult, or individuals with special needs.
While others may charge 15 Quatloos, our exams are free
There are no age limits nor code requirements
The taking of more than one exam per session is at our discretion if time permits
While we do not charge for our exams, successful technician applications uploaded to the FCC start a 10 calendar day clock for a $35 fee to be paid to the FCC by the applicant. The FCC will email you once the clock starts. You cannot submit payment to the FCC until they email you. There are no fees for upgrading your license class, name change, mailing nor email address changes
We recommend taking online practice tests several times after studying before testing
Practice tests with a score of 80% or better help ensure success on your exam
