(The Final Countdown refers to this session being one of your last chances to take a Technician exam with the current question pool before the new one comes on 1 July.)
Greetings! Welcome to your amateur radio licence exam session registration. We are excited to get you licensed or upgraded. Below are some housekeeping items we need to go over.
Fees (or lack thereof)
For those affiliated with the MORE Project, they will cover all applicable fees, so ignore the fee section above and below (unless you fall under GLAARG's own fee waiver categories).
Everyone else, if you fall under GLAARG's own fee waiver category of under-18, student, military, veteran, first responder or GLAARG VE upgrading to Extra, please let me (Charlie) know. Otherwise, you will need to pay the session fee (select K3CL session manager and session ID 6031) before being allowed to sit for the exam.
For new licences, the FCC will send you a bill for their $35 once the session is processed on their end. Please do the thing within ten days else your application gets dismissed. We can refile after that, but due to logistical challenges, would rather avoid such scenarios.
All applications require a personal (not business) FRN; you can get one during registration if you do not have one. The FCC requires that all information is kept current (especially if they need to contact you). Students with school emails, you may want to use a different email in case your school email gets deactivated after some time. There is no restriction on the type of mailing address, as long as it is located in the US and you can receive mail there.
You will receive further information, particularly connection info and a reminder to pay the testing fee if applicable, either in your registration confirmation or separately.
All classes of exams are offered in the following order: Technician, General, Amateur Extra. Please make sure you study for the correct element(s)/level(s), as it is not permitted to take them out of sequence. More than one exam per session is allowed. To increase chances of success, please ensure that you have viewed every single question in the pool(s) you are studying for at least once. All are allowed one retest on examiner discretion, charged at the same rate as the initial registration.
Since this is a remote exam, we need to adequately monitor you and your testing environment. We will use Zoom for this, so please familiarise or review features and settings, particularly screen sharing.
Most importantly, please study the material well! We are all pulling for you to succeed!
