We will be offering an Amateur radio testing session at Borrego Fest. You do not have to attend Borrego Fest in order to take the test. You can drive in during the event and test if you like.

: Sunday, October 11, 2015
Time: 10:00 AM to Noon
Cost: $15.00
Levels: Tests for all levels of Amateur Radio licensing will be offered.
Location:[/b] Meeting room at the Butterfield Ranch RV Resort, 14925 Great Southern Overland Stage Route • Julian, CA 92036.

In order to effectively plan for this, we will need to get an idea of how many would like to participate. If you think you will be testing, please post here and we will add your name to the list.

Please review the following recommendations:

All New License Candidates

Several days before the test session please go on-line and register for your 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 via the FCC website. Go to ( ), then click on the “Register” button and fill in the requested information. Print out the completed form, that contains your FRN number, and bring it with you to the test. On the day of the test, please bring the following:

1. A legal photo identification card.
2. Your FCC assigned FRN number or Social Security Number.
3. $15.00 cash for your testing fees. Please provide exact change.

All License Upgrade Candidates

Bring the above listed items as well as an original or photocopy of your Amateur Radio license. You may also print out a reference copy from the FCC Universal Licensing Service website.

If you wish, you may use a calculator. If it is programmable, you must demonstrate that the memories have been cleared.

There is enough time to prepare to either get that first license or to upgrade. Good luck!!
