Learn How To Help Nebraska Communities During Crisis or Disaster

When all communication fails, we go to work!

Would you like to learn what to do in a disaster or crisis? Amateur Radio Emergency Services are volunteer radio operators who use their skills, training, & equipment to provide communications during an emergency in Nebraska. We offer FREE CLASSES to those who are interested in basic storm spotting or help you find an amateur radio class. Or we can assist you in getting access to FEMA and ARRL courses.

We offer FREE classes for anyone who wants to attend. Contact Aaron Rogge, NØADR, class@k0kkv.org for more information. Watch the main page for class dates and locations.

TESTING

Volunteer Examiner (VE) testing is conducted every month.

Testing is held at 6:30 PM on the first Thursday of the month at Virginia’s Cafe, 3820 Cornhusker Hwy, in Lincoln. Please refer to the calendar to confirm VE test dates.

NEW LICENSE?

The cost of testing is $15. A picture ID, or two IDs without pictures, is required.  Bring the original license with a copy if you are upgrading so we can process the paperwork.  If you just passed an exam or upgraded and have not received your license from the FCC, bring a copy of your CSCE.  We will forward it with the your paperwork. Bring your FCC Registration Number (FRN), if you know it.  The FRN is required on all recent FCC licenses and applications, not just on our Amateur licenses.

The FCC no longer mails a paper license.  They send an email with a digital copy.  It is important to provide a current email address on the Form ULS License Manager.  You can also reset the FCC’s ULS default and the FCC can provide official authorizations on paper.  Go to: https://apps.fcc.gov/coresWeb/publicHome to get started with the ULS License Manager.
