Bring a check or cash with you. 

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.

For those of you who do not wish to give us a Social Security number, you may go the FCC website at: http://wireless.fcc.gov/uls/about/gettingstarted1.html to register for a FRN (you will need to give them your Social Security Number).

 

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.

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.
