You can get your FCC Amateur Radio License in One Day
(Note: Morse code is no longer needed for any amateur radio license)
If you can spare one Saturday, chances are very good you can get your amateur radio Technician license in one day. Don’t worry if you’re not technically inclined, this method depends more on short-term memory than technical knowledge or background. By spending six hours studying the question pool, you’ll remember enough to pass the exam given at the end of the class. We provide the study material. The test is 35 multiple-choice questions. You only need 26 correct to pass. This method has worked with teenagers to senior citizens.
With a Technician license, you can use VHF and UHF amateur radio bands, when the phones go dead and your cell phone doesn’t get reception, you will be able to get a message out with a simple hand-held radio. For emergency workers, adding Amateur Radio capability adds to your communications abilities. And best of all, it is great fun and there are many interesting people to meet.
So after I get my license, what’s next? Members of the Quannapowitt Radio Association are ready and willing to teach you the practicle matters of getting “on the air”. We will answer your questions on how to get on the air and help with what radio to buy, etc.
