Ham radio license exam to be Dec. 14

Nov. 26, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- The Tri-State Amateur Radio Association is sponsoring examinations for new or upgraded amateur radio "ham" licenses from the Federal Communications Commission at 9 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 14, at the Museum of Radio and Technology, 1640 Florence Ave., Huntington.

All examination elements will be offered for all amateur radio license classes. A fee of $15 will be charged per test.

Pre-registration is not necessary, but applicants must complete FCC Form NCVEC 605, available at the exam session, and must bring required documents with them. Two forms of accepted identification -- including one picture ID -- must be presented, and applicants must bring both the original and a copy of any ham radio licenses they currently hold as well as any Certificate of Successful Completion of Examination (CSCE) from previous exams.

For more information, call Garry Ritchie at 304-733-1300.
