Get Licensed

Amateur Radio is an internationally regulated hobby.  For US Domestic licenses, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has jurisdiction over the Amateur Radio Service.  The FCC formulates Amateur Radio regulations consistent with International treaties governing the use of Radio Spectrum, as well as laws/regulations passed by Congress.  Currently, the US Amateur Radio licensing structure consists of 3 tiers, with operating and radio spectrum privileges increasing with each tier.  Each license tier requires the prospective licensee to pass an exam which demonstrates knowledge of electronic theory, rules and regulations, and operating practices.
