Amateur Radio License Exams

Sessions are held on the 3rd Saturday of every odd month (January, March, May, July, September, and November) at the Santa Clarita Valley Senior Center – Room A6. If you wish to take a test, you need to contact Ron Klein, K6VPV by telephone (661) 259-0948 at least five days before the testing session. This is so that we can have the necessary forms and testing materials ready for you and so that you can be informed on what you need to bring with you.
