The San Diego County Amateur Radio Council (SANDARC), Inc. was founded to provide service and support to the San Diego Amateur Radio Community. We do this in many ways, not the least our Volunteer Examiner Program.  SANDARC holds an examination session each and every weekend of the year with the exception of the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays. This could not be achieved without a group of dedicated volunteers.

SANDARC also sponsors the ARRL Southwestern Division Convention every four years, and we have testing/exams on site.



SANDARC sponsored examinations for Amateur Radio licenses, new and upgrades are provided every Saturday as follows:

To upgrade you MUST have your valid FRN number with you. To get your FRN number please visit: http://www.fcc.gov or better Click here If you do not have a valid FRN no test!

You will also need $5.00 "Cash" for the test.

What Is An FRN?
The FCC Registration Number is a 10-digit number that is assigned to an entity registering with the CORES. The entity that you register will have a unique FRN that is used to identify each entity with the Commission.

How To Obtain An FRN
Everyone doing business with the FCC is encouraged to obtain an FRN as soon as possible. There are two ways to obtain an FRN. Most entities that have previously registered with the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau's Universal Licensing System (ULS) will automatically be registered in CORES. The entity is not required to register with CORES again. Those entities will receive a registration letter concerning the conversion to CORES and FRN.

You can also register electronically for an FRN at http://wireless.fcc.gov/uls/index.htm?job=home and click on the CORES Registration link, or by filing FCC Form 160, CORES Registration which may be obtained either at http://www.fcc.gov/formpage.html or by calling the FCC's Form Distribution Center at 1-800-418-FORM [3676]. Mailing instructions are found on the form.
