Getting licensed to operate a Ham radio is very simple and straightforward. You simply show up to a scheduled test and for a small fee, take the test and get your license.

Classes

There are three classes of licenses:

  • Technician class - This is the introductory class and easiest to get.
  • General Class - A step up from the Tech class and with more rights.
  • Amateur Extra - The "bragging rights" class. Difficult and arcane test required.

Tests

Upcoming test: Aug 20, 2011: Huntsville Hamfest.
