“Did you know that you can generate donations while shopping for your valentine, at no extra cost? Simply start your shopping at smile.amazon.com/ch/58-1695681 to confirm “Charlotte Amateur Radio Corporation” as your charity of choice, and AmazonSmile will donate a portion of your eligible purchase price to our organization.”

W4CQ has now been established as a charity within the Amazon Smile program. If you shop on Amazon, you can choose W4CQ (Charlotte Amateur Radio Corp) as your designated charity. It does not change the amount you pay to Amazon. Amazon makes a donation to your chosen charity.  To set it up, point your browser to smile.amazon.com and look in the upper left for “Amazon Smile”. Click that, and when the next page appears, you can choose (or change) the charity to be “Charlotte Amateur Radio Corporation”. If you have any difficulties or questions, please contact Ed Prentice K4EGP.ham@GMail.com.

 

Sorry, we had to CANCEL THIS  TEST SESSION DUE TO COVID 19 CONCERNS. Be on the lookout for future Test Sessions.

Masks are required for everyone. You must already have your FRN (see below), and a copy of the Form 605. If you’re upgrading, also bring a copy of your current license., to go with the Test Packet.

You must RSVP with Jeff, KA4WYC at KA4WYC@gmail.com to request a seat for the Test Session. We will limit the Test Session to 10 people total.

So, if you or someone you know is looking for a test session, you’ll need this information:

Bring the following with you:

  • A copy, to leave, of your FCC license and/or any CSCE‘s, if you are upgrading.  Your CSCE is only needed if you somehow passed elements out of order and don’t have a license yet (for example, you passed Element 3 or 4, and never passed Element 2).
  • Your FRN (FCC Registration Number). If you are not licensed, you can go to WWW.FCC.ORG to request one prior to the test session.
  • The Form 605. If you don’t have one, we’ll have copies there, or you can download it here and print it out beforehand. It’s always best to have it filled out in black ink beforehand.
  • A government-issued Photo ID, like your State driver’s license.
  • A MASK! You won’t be admitted without a MASK.
  • FINALLY IT’S NO CHARGE!  IT’S FREE!

If you have any questions, please let me know, by calling my cellphone at 704-577-3619. Stay safe! 73, Jeff KA4WYC
