About License Exam & Meeting Minutes

Howdy! Here are the question pools for new members who would like to get an amateur radio license and a call sign. Technician Class Exam will be the first exam for beginners. If you can memorize all the questions in the question pool, it would be very easy to pass the exam. Send us an email when you are ready. We will arrange a test for you. Good luck!

Technician Class Question Pool Must pass this exam before taking other two.

General Class Question Pool For those who passed Technician Class Exam.

Extra Class Question Pool For those who passed General Class Exam.

It is possible that you can pass all three exams in one day with only $15 (non refundable exam fee), however, only few elites have done that. Therefore, it is recommended to start with Technician Class first and see how it goes for you. For more information regarding the license exam, please click here
