Please print the attached PDF file and fill out the top half of the Study Session registration form. If for some reason you don’t have the sign-in form, they will be available at the class. This will speed up the paper work at the beginning of the session. This is going to be a large group, so please have the form filled out and completed payment with you when you sign in. If you can’t make it please let us know; the class usually fills and we have to turn people away, spots that we can re-use if we know.
The Fee is $30.00 for this session, pay at the session, cash or check. This covers the cost of the study materials and the FCC exam and license fee. Make checks payable to: Ross Peterson.

We MUST check 2 forms of ID, one must be a picture ID. You MUST have your Social Security Number, TIN or FCC FRN available for the license application, the application can’t be processed without both.

If you have a current amateur Radio license and are planning to upgrade, please bring a copy of your current license that we can keep to send in with your upgrade package.
If you wish to take the Extra exam, you MUST study prior to the session. The question pool is too large to cover in one day of study. Feel free to join us for additional study and bring your study materials. the exam fee is $14.00.
The building will be open at 8:00 AM and we will start sign-in then. The session introduction will start promptly at 8:30. Please don’t be late, if you miss the orientation it will be extremely difficult to catch up.

This is a cram style session, we have found that it works best if you do NOT study any of the material prior to the session, rest well and have a light breakfast and come prepared to study.
Lunch is available at shopping areas a short distance away or bring a sack lunch. We will have coffee, tea hot water and hot chocolate available.
