Outdoor Adventure USA
Amateur Radio License Exam Session

You have worked hard on studying for your FCC Amateur Radio License. Here is what we need to take the next step into the world of Amateur Radio.

Most of our testing sessions will be at remote locations; we may not have the facilities to research or create copies of FCC required documentation. Therefore it is very important to bring the items and documents requested in this message.

Several days before the test session please go on-line and register for your FCC FRN (FCC Registration Number). The FCC will require either an FRN or Social Security Number in order to process your license application. While we can process your application with your Social Security number, we would prefer not to do so, due to the sensitive nature of those 9 numbers.

It is easy to obtain your FRN is via the FCC website https://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/coresWeb/publicHome.do then click on the yellow “Register” button and fill in the requested information.

All License Candidates please bring:
  • A legal photo identification card or 2 of the following Non-photo ID/driver's license; Social Security Card; Birth certificate (must have the appropriate seal); Minor’s work permit, school report card, school ID card or library card; Utility bill, bank statement or other business correspondence that specifically names the person; Postmarked envelope addressed to the person at his or her current mailing address as it appears on the Form 605.
  • Your FCC assigned FRN number or Social Security Number.
  • $15.00 cash for your testing fees. Please provide exact change.
  • A blue or black ink pen and a pencil or two for taking the exams.
  • If you wish, you may use calculator. If it is a programmable you must demonstrate that the memories have been cleared.
All License Upgrade Candidates bring the above listed items as well as:
  • If you have any unexpired (less than 365 days old) Certificates of Successful Completion of an Exam (CSCE) session that you will be using to apply for an upgrade.(this is not likely since code requirement has been eliminated) please bring an Original and a Photocopy of Certificates of Successful Completion of an Exam (CSCE) that you may be using to apply for an upgrade.

Congratulations to all who tested with us on Saturday. Final results were: 1 Extra upgrade, 2 General upgrades and 3 Technicians. New licenses should now be posted on the FCC website.

Of all the places where we could have held the testing session, our beach location on Fiesta Island is right at the top of the list. Look for us to return next year!
