There are many ways to prepare for an amateur radio license exam.

You can use an ARRL License Manual for the class of license that you would like to obtain.  Generally, you would take the Technician Class License exam first.

You can take more than one level of exam at our exam sessions and we always have all 3 levels of exams available.

 

For the Technician Class License, we suggest the ARRL Ham Radio License Manual 3rd Edition (valid for exams given from July 1, 2014 thru June 30, 2018)

 

For the General Class License, we suggest the ARRL General Class License Manual 8th Edition (valid for exams given from July 1, 2015 thru June 30, 2019)

 

For the Extra Class License, we suggest the ARRL Extra Class License Manual 11th Edition (valid for exams given from July 1, 2016 thru June 30, 2020)

 

The ARRL offers Online Review and Practice Exams for all of their manuals.

 

 

These license manuals can be purchased locally at:

 

Bentronics (an electronics store), 141 Locust Street, Redding.  Phone:  530 246-2227

 

Redding Barnes & Noble Booksellers, 1260 Churn Creek Road, Redding.  Phone:  530 222-2006

 

We recommend that you call first to make sure that they have the specific license manual in stock.
