contact with other ham radio operators in the U.S. and Canada.Visitors who are interested in observing how ham radio works, or “Getting On The Air” stop by our
“GOTA” station. Visitors are welcome during regular

ATTENTION ANYONE INTERESTED IN OBTAINING A TECHNICIAN CLASS AMATEUR RADIO LICENSE
FCC now requires new applicants to register in CORES
The FCC recently announced that all new license candidates for an amateur radio license must register in CORES prior to taking an amateur radio exam. This process will generate an FCC Registration Number (FRN) to be used in place of a Social Security number on Form 605. The FCC produced a video about this process, which you can view here, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7a4doKEPN5m.
We strongly encourage you to register if you have not done so. Eventually the FCC will no longer accept Social Security numbers on Form 605. To register, go HERE. [Link to https://apps.fcc.gov/cores/userLogin.do] Any questions, contact the FCC using the phone number or email address posted on the CORES page.
The MRAC Volunteer Examiner Coordinator will not have the capabilities for candidates to register on CORES at a testing session. If you have not registered and if you do no have an FRN, you will NOT be able to take an examination!
