Technician class license
The Technician class license is the entry-level license and requires passing an exam on basic radio theory, regulations and operating practices. The license allows Technicians to use the Amateur Radio frequencies above 30 megahertz and some limited privileges on shortwave bands used for international communications. Learning Morse code is NOT required. Check the EDUCATION pull down menu for information on the FCC test requirements and preparation.
