FCC Technician Exam Question Of The Day (T1C10)

Q) How soon may you operate a transmitter on an amateur service frequency after you pass the examination required for your first amateur radio license?

A) As soon as your name and call sign appear in the FCC's ULS database.

NJ2X Note:
The FCC database will become one of your most frequented sites immediately after taking your test.  It is a little like being a kid on Christmas morning when your call finally appears.  Fun!
