Thanks for the inquiry – we will be happy to have you join us next Monday – This is the “formal” announcement that I sent out – the application is attached – please complete it and return it to me. See you at the test session!
We are very happy to announce that we will be able to hold another amateur radio test session Monday, December 19, 2022. This will be held at the South Swansea Baptist Church in Swansea, MA. We will be opening the doors at 5:30 pm. It will be very helpful for us if you register for this session ahead of time by filling out and returning the attached form. Please email if you have questions or difficulty.
Requirements from the FCC. There is now an additional fee for new and renewal licenses. You will pay the $15.00 fee as usual for the test – this goes to the ARRL for expenses related to administering the tests. Then upon receipt of the results by the FCC you will receive an email with instructions to submit a $35.00 fee to the FCC within 10 days after which your license will be issued. There is no fee for upgrades. Email me if you have questions and I can either answer or direct you to a source for the answer.
Due to FCC requirements, we can no longer process applications using a Social Security number. You will have to obtain an FRN number from the FCC. If you need assistance with that, please email me back and I will send you the links.
When we receive your registration we will send you a confirmation with specific directions to the site. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have. We will be doing upgrades as well as new licenses and you may take multiple tests at this session.
Thanks and we hope to see you there,
