A test session will be held at 10 AM on Sunday, December 17th at the Lake County Office of Education in Lakeport. If you are interested in testing, please contact Tim WB9NJS. If you would like to participate as a volunteer examiner, please contact Nick KI6RIT.

ALERT: Effective April 19th 2022, the FCC will be implementing a $35 application fee for new license applications. Upgrading an existing license to a higher class is exempt. The fee is in addition to the $15 test fee. Volunteer examiners (VEs) won't be collecting the application fee; you will need to make payment to the FCC directly. Click here for more information.


On November 4th and 11th, test sessions were held in Fort Bragg and Ukiah, respectively. Six people tested in Ukiah and five passed - three new technician-class, one upgrade from technician to general, and one upgrade from general to extra. The test session results for Fort Bragg will be posted once they are received.


Zoom presentations on the 10 subject areas of the FCC General Class Amateur Radio license test will begin October 3 at 1800 hrs (6:00 PM), and continue each Tuesday evening in October.

The two hour presentations will be recorded and available below:

To receive the Zoom link to the live presentations, send an email with GENERAL CLASS in the subject line to: Include your name, callsign, if licensed, and the name of your community. A Zoom link will be emailed to you.

Please help us spread the word to anyone you think might be interested by sending them the attached flier.

Thanks for your help.
