rules and regulations



in depth

The Federal Communications Commission, or FCC, is the governing body that regulates the airwaves in the United States. They oversee and enforce the rules over everything from your local radio and TV stations to the fascinating world of amateur radio, also known as the Amateur Radio Service. Part 97 of the Code of Federal Regulations outlines these rules.

But the FCC isn't just about rules and regulations—their goal is advancing skills in the technical and communication phases of the radio art. That's right, amateur radio isn't just a practical skill, it's a true art form with endless opportunities for exploration and creativity.
