Study Materials

The FRRL periodically sponsors license education classes.  Information is available on the Education page.  Our classes use the ARRL license manuals for each level.  The technician level class uses the current edition of the ARRL Ham Radio License Manual.
Remember, there is no Morse Code requirement any longer to obtain your ham radio license!
