Want to operate a radio? You will need a license, and that's where we come in. Depending on the frequency band(s) you wish to operate we can help you get the license you need. New hams need to start with a Technician license. From there you can upgrade to General and even Extra class licenses.

You are also invited to our club meetings to learn more about Amateur Radio. Come on down!!!! The information about our club meetings can be found on this very website,

If you are unable to attend a local test session, you may now take your test online through GLAARG (Greater Los Angeles Amateur Group VEC). Go to their link at and locate a date and time that works for you. Follow the instructions and then select the "Register" button at the bottom. They will answer any questions that you may have.
