Event Details

Obtain or upgrade your FCC amateur radio license!

The Billerica Amateur Radio Society (BARS) is hosting a VE proctored amateur radio license exam starting at 7:00 PM at:

The Chelmsford Bible Church(previously Matthews Memorial Church)
128 Gorham St. (Route 3A)
East Chelmsford, MA 01824

Session fee is $15. All three FCC qualification tests are available (consecutive): technician, general, and extra.

If you plan on attending:

  1. Bring the exam fee of $15.
  2. Obtain an FCC FRN (federal registration number) before attending the exam. Bring your FRN number to the exam. Get one here: FCC FRN Registraion
  3. Bring several #2 pencils.
  4. Bring a non-programmable calculator.
  5. Optional: Study but don’t stress out. The tests are multiple choice. They are not difficult if you spend some time running practice tests using one of the online practice exams. You’ll be a lot less stressed on exam day and will have a much greater chance at passing the first time. Perhaps, you’ll pass all three license class exams…

Upon passing, the subsequently issued (within a couple of weeks) FCC license is good for ten years. From my understanding, BARS will sponsor your membership for a year as well.

You can find more information directly from BARS by clicking the “Learn More” link below.

Good luck!
