Amateur Radio Licensing Class
Get your license now!
Woodbridge Amateur Radio Club (WARC) will be holding an Amateur Radio Licensing class where we’ll teach you everything you need to know to pass the FCC required exam and get started in Amateur Radio. The first step is the Technician License which covers the VHF/UHF band with a small section of voice in the 10 meter band and more code or CW privileges in the other bands. The technician license opens up the radio world to you and starts you on your journey to lifelong learning of the art and science or radio. The next step is the General License. Whether your desire is to communicate locally, internationally, during emergencies, with satellites or the space station, or using digital modes this is your opportunity to get on the air.

The Technician and General License class question reviews on Saturdays break for one hour around noon. Exam session follows at approximately 5PM.
ARRL/VEC Exam sessions follow the review sessions. Walk-ins allowed.
Pre-study of the Gordon West training program is recommended and expected for success. Below are some study guides and on-line resources you can access to prepare for the class. Please read through the study book before Saturday’s review session.
There’s a lot of material so learning this material ahead of the class allows you to use the class for review and go right through to pass the test. The class is free but there is an ARRL fee of $15 for the test. All FCC Amateur Radio tests will be available after the question review session. ARRL Exam for all license classes from 5-7 PM.
