Get an FRN!

Richard, KD7BBC, recently posted this to the HamRadioHelpGroup Yahoo Group:

It consistently surprises me how many people aren’t aware that instead of giving the VE team your SSN you can get an FCC Registration┬áNumber (FRN) and give it to them.

To try to help combat this, I have written up a blog post with images to help people get an FRN number.

I *strongly* recommend that anyone planning to take an exam get an FRN before going to the exam session; it’s not that you can’t trust the VE team, it’s more that it’s not a good idea to have that kind of personal information floating around anywhere, and likely the VE team would rather not have to deal with it either.

I agree with him. Before you take the Tech test, get an FRN and give that to the VE team.
