Please note the following:

  • If you are planning to take the Amateur Extra exam, you must study the question pool dated 1 July 2020 through 30 Jun 2024.  This new question pool is available at the National Conference of Volunteer Coordinators (NCVEC) website.   Study guides are also available from other on-line sources, such as https://hamexam.org. Be sure you are studying the question pool dated 1 July 2020 through 30 Jun 2024.
  • Beginning 1 Jan 2021 a SSAN (Social Security number) will no longer be accepted by the FCC when you test for your initial amateur radio license. You must have an FRN to test and become licensed.  Watch this video for assistance: https://youtu.be/7a4doKEPN5M
