License Testing @ American Red Cross
Jun 5 @ 7:00 pm

TARS holds ARRL-sponsored VEC test sessions for all classes of Amateur Radio Licenses on the first Tuesday of even numbered months at 7 pm at the American Red Cross, 1115 Easterwood Dr. near Tom Brown Park.

There is a $15 fee, cash or check. Be sure to bring two pencils and a calculator with a memory that can be cleared (not a smart phone).

Bring a photo ID and your Social Security Number (SSN). Rather than giving your SSN at the exam session, you may register your SSN on-line with the FCC before exam day. Once you have a FCC-issued Federal Registration Number (FRN), you may no longer use your SSN on the application. Getting an FRN before the exam is recommended. For instructions on how to register your SSN with the FCC and receive an FRN, visit the FCC’s Registration Page http://wireless.fcc.gov/uls/index.htm?job=home .

If you are upgrading to a higher level license, bring a photo copy of your existing license or a Certificate of Successful Completion of Examination (CSCE) you may hold from previous exam sessions. The photocopy(s) will not be returned.
