Taking an exam to get or upgrade your Ham License could not be easier with the Western Colorado Amateur Radio Club.

- 2nd Saturday of the month, around 11:30 am, Civil Air Patrol Hanger. Exam testing can be scheduled right after the WCARC Club Meeting. The meeting starts at 9:30am and usually runs till about 11 am. You are welcome to come out for the meeting to meet members and then test afterwards. You can also schedule to just take the exam around 11:30 am. Please call or email so we know your coming and can meet you at the gate.
- 3rd Saturday of the month @ 9am, Mesa Country Central Library. No walk-ins. Please call or email ahead of time to schedule the test.
** Please Note that you will be require to get an FRN – FCC Registration Number, before testing, in order to fill out the paperwork and take your first test. Getting an FRN is free and you can do it on-line at the FCC Website – https://apps.fcc.gov/cores/userLogin.do
In the past you could enter your Social Security Number on the form but we believe this is a risk you should not take. The fewer pieces of paper that your SSN is on, the better. The FRN is free and easy to get. If you did use your SSN, the FCC would assign you an FRN automatically when they received your paperwork. So it is better to do it yourself and stay in control of your SSN. Thank you for your assistance on this. If you have any questions about getting an FRN, please let is know.
