JTRG Sponsored Amateur Radio Exams

There are numerous aspects to the hobby of Amateur Radio including electronics, event communications, DX or long-distance communications, digital and satellite communications, etc., but certainly one of the most important involves emergency communications. Amateur Radio Operators have been an important part of communicating information during and immediately following numerous disasters. The expression coined within the Amateur Radio community that best captures this is, “When all else fails, Amateur Radio works!”If you have an interest in any of these aspects of the hobby, JTRG would like to help you get there.  There are three levels of licensing in Amateur Radio – Technician, General and Extra. Beginning with Technician, each level requires the successful completion of an examination. The cost of each exam is $15.00.

Study books and tapes can be purchased from the ARRL and online bookstores such as and locally like a Barnes & Noble.

There are numerous sites offering online pre-testing which is an excellent way to test your knowledge and prepare for test day! ARRL, QRZ, eHam, AA9PW, RadioExam, and others.


JTRG regularly sponsors Technician training classes and Amateur Radio Exams, which are listed to the right. Test sessions cost $15 and you must remember to bring two forms of ID including a government issued photo ID. If you are upgrading to General or Amateur Extra, be sure to also bring a copy of your FCC license and C.S.C.E. If you need more information about our exam sessions please review our calendar and/or contact: Albert Moreschi, Volunteer Examiner Liaison via e-mail at
