Please bring a photo ID, $10 test fee (cash or check), pencils, and optionally a calculator. You must provide either your Social Security Number or (preferred) your Federal Registration Number (FRN).

Wild fires devastated California during the summer of 2018. Both land-line and cell phone coverage was quickly
lost from either power loss or fire damage to the cell towers; ham radio was THE way to communicate. See “Ama-
teur Radio Emergency Service Volunteers Assist in California Fire Response” (http://www.arrl.org/news/amateur-

Become an amateur radio operator and be ready to help in a disaster.
