Ham Radio License Class

Several people have expressed an interest in getting an amateur radio license.

Tests are given here in Austin on the first and third Saturdays of the month. The Technician exam consists of a 35 question multiple-choice test that covers basic electronics, radio fundamentals, station setup, operating practices, safety, and FCC regulations. Morse code is no longer required for any class of amateur license.
