Membership Information and Expectations

Membership is open to any FCC licensed amateur radio operator in our operating area

Not already a licensed amateur radio operator ("ham") ?  

Click this banner for info on how to become one.

To earn the Technician license requires passing one examination totaling 35 questions on radio theory, regulations and operating practices (no morse code requirement). The license gives access to all Amateur Radio frequencies above 30 megahertz, allowing these licensees the ability to communicate locally and most often within North America.

The Amateur Radio Relay League (ARRL) is the national organization for all hams. 

A major commercial website for hams is QRZ.  Click here for their practice license example tests.
