Amateur Radio Upcoming License Exams

Watch this page for Upcoming amateur radio license exam sessions. We will attempt to update this page every Sunday by 12:00 Noon (Eastern) from information on the 12 County Net, heard on the KQ1L Linked Repeater System. Dixmont is 146.850(-)[100.0]) at 09:30 (Eastern). Information is also found on the ARRL Website on the Exam Session Search Page and select your state (Maine) or other criteria and hit search.

We are going to make it easy for you -- we will put them here too. Any Piscataquis ARC sessions will be in a Goldenrod color, so you know they are ours. Any accessibility or special accommodations for tests need to be known in advance. We will add contact info when available for each test session.

Did you just pass your test? Want to know if you have a Call Sign yet? Use the FCC License Search Page to find out.
