What is the Ham Radio Crash Course?

Started by Josh Nass (KI6NAZ) as a YouTube channel, Ham Radio Crash Course (HRCC) has evolved into a rapidly growing community of radio ethusiasts that are excited to grow in the hobby, and help others grow as well.

Ham Radio Crash Course is now home to the HRCC Live Stream, HRCC Concise Videos, HRCC Podcast and Ham Nation Show. You can find more information on the HRCC Discord or HRCC Facebook Group.

The Vision

Ham Radio Crash Course is an inclusive community focused on normalizing ham radio, getting people licensed, having fun with everything the hobby has to offer and keeping the bands alive.

-Josh Nass, KI6NAZ

Fees and Payments

  • The HRCC VE Team runs most of our exams through the SANDARC VEC, which means we do not charge any exam fees.

  • If requested, we can run sessions for minor through the ARRL/VEC. While they charge $5, they will reimburse the FCC application fee on submission of a receipt.

  • There is a $35 application fee payable directly to the FCC after your application is submitted. More information will be provided at your exam session.

Next Steps

After you register, you will receive a confirmation email from our testing provider ExamTools containing Zoom link information.
