The granting of this privilege by federal licenses is subject to the applicant s ability to demonstrate basic radio technical and code knowledge (Note Morse code is no longer a requirement) and familiarity with regulations governing the amateur service. A primary purpose of licensing is to ensure the operator of the radio transmitter is sufficiently skilled that he will not by improper adjustment of the equipment or lack of knowledge of regulations cause interference to other services using the radio spectrum. To own and operate an amateur radio station in the United States or possessions it is necessary to have two licenses both of which are issued by The Federal Communications Commission Licensing Unit at P.O. Box 1020 Gettysburg Pa. 17325. For the operator there is the operator license issued after the individual has passed a code test (Note Morse code is no longer a requirement) and a written examination (Note Multiple choice questions) designed to test his familiarity with radio law and regulations and his knowledge of proper operation of amateur radio transmitting equipment. This examination may be taken at any of the numerous field offices of the Commission or in certain cases by mail as will be explained later. For the transmitting equipment there is the station license which authorizes the operation of transmitting equipment at a specific location and also authorizes the operation at a specified location and also authorizes portable and mobile operation as permitted under the regulations. Actually the primary license is a single card form containing both the operator and station authorization. It is not necessary that you post your license in your radio room if you are the only operator but it is required that you have it in your personal possession whenever and wherever you are operating.
