General Information

There will be no exam hosted for the month of July 2020 in light of the developments surrounding COVID-19. We do plan to restart exam session in August. Registration will be required, we will not be accepting walk-ins. Thank you for your understanding in this matter. 

The license exams (VE sessions) are usually given each month prior to the general club meeting. Anyone is welcome to come for their examination, you do not have to be a club member. We start our testing at 6:00pm, and we stop taking applicants at 6:15pm. We are done with testing (all paperwork processed, all testing materials packed up) by 7:00pm. No exams are held in the month of December.

There is NO charge for the test, age limit or code requirements.

We invite everyone to stay for one of our club meetings which start at 7:30pm following the exam sessions.  These meetings often have informative presentations, as well as our members to answer your questions.


  • In response to COVID-19, all applicants must bring and wear a mask that covers their nose and mouth at all times. A temperature check will be conducted on all applicants.
  • A Photo ID – if the applicant does not have a government issued id, then a school id or other form of picture identification may be acceptable.
  • An FRN (FCC Registration Number) –  You MUST have an FRN before you can get credit for any examination. As of March 2019 you must have a CORES account to register for an FRN. Read these instructions for getting a CORES account and an FRN. Bring your FRN with you.
  • A copy of current license (if you are upgrading an existing license), which we may keep. Alternatively, you may present a signed CSCE from a recent exam session. You must have passed and have proof of the previous class license to take the next level license exam.
