MAKE SURE you use the latest Question Pool

Walk-Ins are welcome!

We offer amateur testing for those who want to get into ham radio or those who want to upgrade their current license.  We try to coordinate our testing schedule so that we do not overlap with the other ham radio club in our area that offers testing.  We test during the even numbered months (February, April, June, August, October and December) on the 2nd Thursday.  Testing begins at 7:00PM

MORSE CODE: As of February 23rd, 2007 the FCC dropped all Morse Code requirements to get your license.  This includes the Technician Class Exam, General Class Exam and the Extra Class Exam.  The test is a written or computer based test that consists of multiple choice questions and answers.  So if you never got your ham radio license because you couldn't learn Morse Code, that hurdle is now gone. Having said that, if you still want to learn CW, here is a website with some tips to help you at Ham Universe

Our testing location is on US 441 at the Marion County Sheriff's Office Substation. Click here to see a map of where the testing site is located.

The cost for testing is $15.  If you pass the test you have just taken, you may take the next level test at no additional charge.  If you fail the test you have just taken, you must pay an additional $15 if you would like to try again, even though you are taking the same level test again.

Here are some links to a few online practice exams, study material resources and question pools.  We hope that this will help get you on your way to getting your ham radio license.
