October 2022 RCARC Exam Session
This is an in-person ham radio exam session open to the public; it will take place at the East Central Indiana Hamfest, 1885 US-27, Winchester, IN 47394. Walk-in applicants are welcome, though if you are planning to attend, it will help the session run more efficiently if you pre-register.
The exam fee is $14. You may follow this link to pay online. Please use the same email address you used to sign up for the exam session. Otherwise, the exam fee is payable in cash at the exam session, or by credit or debit card.
You will need to bring ID to the exam session. It is strongly preferable that this be a government-issued photo ID (e.g. drivers license or learner's permit, passport, etc.). If you do not have a government-issued ID, at the discretion of your VEs, you may be allowed to provide two other forms of ID with your name on them, one of which must be an unexpired photo ID (for example, a current student ID and a debit card may be acceptable).
You will need an FCC Registration Number (FRN) to take an exam. If you do not already have one, the exam registration process will guide you through the process of obtaining one. You may also choose to register for it in advance by visiting the FCC's CORES website.
If you have passed another ham radio license exam recently and the corresponding license has not yet been issued, please bring both the original and a photocopy of your Certificate of Successful Completion of Exam (CSCE).
If you would like to use a calculator during your exam, please bring one to the session. You may use any non-network-connected calculator you like, but you will be required to demonstrate to us that it is completely cleared of all memory and storage. Thus, if your calculator is more sophisticated than a 4-function calculator, it would be wise to figure out how to perform a full reset on it before the exam session.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about this exam session.
If you need to cancel your registration, please e-mail us as soon as possible so that we can accommodate someone else waiting to take an exam. If you plan to take more than one exam element, we would also appreciate you e-mailing us a heads-up so that we can plan resources and timing appropriately.
