PARC normally conducts FCC Amateur Radio License Exam sessions quarterly on the fourth Friday of the month at the Mattituck-Laurel Library. Candidates are accepted from 6:30PM to 7:00PM. All license classes are tested. RESERVATIONS ARE REQUESTED WITHIN 24 HOURS OF THE SCHEDULED EXAM.
The FCC Amateur Radio exam session scheduled for Friday OCTOBER 23, 2020has been canceled. The next scheduled exam session is Jan 22, 2021. Details TBD.
If you are planning to get or upgrade your license or know someone who wants to take their license exam, please contact Jim- W2NSF (631) 734-5121 or PARC.W2AMC(AT)GMAIL(DOT).COM for a reservation at least 48 hours prior to a scheduled exam.
You may also request a private session if you have difficulty attending one of the scheduled dates.
Walk-ins have been suspended during the COVID pandemic, reservations WILL be required.
The fee for each exam is $15. If you pass your exam, you can take the next level exam for free. Example: you show up for and pass the Technician Exam, then you may take the General Exam for free (and even the Extra, if you pass the General).
If you fail the exam you showed up for, you may re-take it as many times as you like the same nite, but you must pay an additional $15 filing fee per each retake exam.
We may limit the number of tests (and retakes) based on the library's closing time.
