Did you attended one of the Radio and Electronic Merit Badge Workshops sponsored by the Lake Washington Ham Club and Woodinville ARES Group? If you so, you may have received a FCC Exam voucher. The vouchers were given to those scouts/youth that were interested in getting a ham radio license but were not ready to take the exam at the workshop. We gave out the vouchers so that you could attempt the license exam at a later Lake Washington Ham Club meeting at no additional cost beyond the fee you already paid for the Merit Badge Workshop.

Additional exam study materials are also available. We have Technician level subscriptions to available to interested youth. Contact Phil Sohn, K7APS at to start a subscription.

When you are ready for the exam now — so are we!
