The Thibodaux Amateur Radio Club welcomes anyone interested in the hobbies of Amateur Radio and Short Wave Listening.
We offer instruction and testing for all classes of Amateur Radio licenses. Testing sessions are held at the Terrebonne Parish Public Library North Branch,
4130 West Park, Gray, Louisiana on the 1st Monday of each month at 6:45 PM (18:45).
There are very few requirements to be granted an Amateur Radio license. Pass a written test demonstrating a working knowledge of basic electronic
theory, basic radio theory, procedures and operating practices, and you too can be granted an Amateur Radio license. People as young as 5 have tested
successfully and been granted licenses. There are currently over 3000 visually handicapped operators, ranging from legally blind to completely blind. Physical
impairments are no barrier to holding an Amateur Radio license. If you pass the test and meet the basic FCC specified criteria, a license will be issued to you.
The Thibodaux Amateur Radio Club offers instruction in Amateur Radio, from the 2 day ‘Ham Cram’ course for public service organizations and first
responders to more leisurely paced classes for the general public. We also offer instructional assistance for those ‘do it yourself’ types learning the material on
their own, and sometimes getting ‘stuck’.
The Thibodaux Amateur Radio Club uses both ARRL and W5YI certified Volunteer Examiners to administer and grade the tests on site. A new license
typically takes 5-10 business days to process, but license upgrades are ready for immediate use.
For individual testing, we request that you register in advance, so that we can have the proper number and License Class of test prepared and ready for
