Why should I get licensed ?
Before you can get on the air, you need to be licensed and know the rules to operate legally. U.S. licenses are good for 10 years before renewal. In the U.S. there are three license classes—Technician, General and Extra. The Grand Strand Amateur Radio Club offers exam sessions for anyone wishing to get the Technician entry level license or wanting to upgrade their existing license. Pre-registration for the exam session is requested but not required, walk-ins are also welcome.
