Become a HAM

Getting your license

Becoming an Amateur Radio Operatior (Or HAM Operator) is as simple as passing a multiple choice written test. We have several examiners in the area to help proctor an exam right here in Elko.

Please contact Dave Hough, W7GK to organize a testing session and join the ranks.

Make sure you have an FRN prior to taking your test!

Study materials

The FCC revisits and updates the question pools every four years. There are websites, books, and plenty of materials to help you learn what you need to know to operate from small hand held radios all the way up to world wide reaching base stations.
