Free FCC HAM Radio Technician License Review

Queen Anne's County Library, Centreville

The Queen Anne’s Amateur Radio Club and RACES Team announce an amateur radio technician class. It is to prepare the attendees for the technician class license test. The class will be held in the large meeting room at the Queen Anne’s County library in Centreville on Saturday morning April 18th from 9:30 til noon. A free test session will be held the following Saturday, April 25th , from 9am-noon.

There is NO MORSE CODE REQUIREMENT for this license. Applicants successfully passing the exam will receive a license and call sign from the FCC.  Separate registration is required for the test session.

The technician class license allows the holder to operate a radio on certain frequencies using voice, data or other modes. It is also a stepping stone for advanced licenses that have more privileges.

There is no MORSE CODE requirement for this license. Aspects of amateur radio that my interest students are club membership, communicating with other operators locally, around the world or in space. Additional activities are circuit and antenna construction, contesting, helping with community events, and providing emergency communications support for local government.

The class will be structured as a cursory review of basic electrical, electronic and radio fundamentals plus associated regulations. Sample test questions will be reviewed. Therefore, a significant portion of the learning will be via individual study using test manuals and online resources. A syllabus will be provided as well as information on obtaining manuals and online help. There is no fee for the class but some sources may charge for printed study materials.

Prior sign up is mandatory. By April 6th please contact Rowan Perkins at, or 410-304-2304, or via the club’s facebook page Queen Anne’s Amateur Radio Club, Inc.

Those desiring to take the license exam on April 25th, please contact Ray Payne , or 410-200-3678.
