Note: Morse Code is no longer a requirement for any Amateur License

There is no charge for the class itself, but you should have a textbook (The ARRL Ham Radio License Manual) that you can obtain beforehand from the ARRL or from us for a nominal fee (about $25.00.)  Check on the cost when you contact us.

When it is time to take the test at the end of the class, there is a charge of $15.00 to cover expenses for the test.  Please have exact cash.  Also, bring with you a valid picture ID and copies of any other previous licensing or CSCE's you may have.

Contact at 419.476.2947 or at 419.467.3734 to express your interest in a class.
