Notes from the team:

This is an in-person ham radio exam session open to the public Walk-in applicants are welcome, though if you plan to attend, it will help the session run more efficiently if you pre-register. When you pre-register, you should receive an e-mail from us within a day including payment instructions. Otherwise, the exam fee is payable in cash at the exam session (exact change is appreciated). NOTE: If you register using a Yahoo! e-mail address, all e-mails we send you will likely end up in your spam folder because Yahoo! consistently misclassifies them. Since we need to be able to communicate with you reliably by e-mail, we recommend that if you have an e-mail address with a different provider, you use that. If you must use a Yahoo! address, please remember to check your spam folder regularly. You will need to bring your ID to the exam session. It is strongly preferable that this be a government-issued photo ID (e.g., driver's license or learner's permit, passport, etc.). 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. You will take your exam on a Windows laptop or tablet that we will provide. We have a limited number of laptops available; depending on attendance at the session, you may have to wait a short while until one is available. Exam administration with laptops or tablets is much speedier than the traditional paper format, even though the exams are the same. If you would truly prefer to take your exam on paper, let us know 2 days before the testing session and we may be able to accommodate you. 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. If you do not know how to clear your calculator, we may help you figure it out (possibly after making some bad jokes). If we also cannot figure out how to clear your calculator, you will not be allowed to use it. Please contact micah.conrad@sbcglobal.net with any questions about this exam session. If you need to cancel your registration, please me 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. If you pass the lower-level exam, you may take all available exam elements pertaining to your status for one $14.00 fee. If you fail an exam on the first try, you must pay an additional $14.00 for the repeat exam.
