Getting your Amateur Radio License Education and Training The first license class that you can attain is called the “Technician” class and allows you to operate on the VHF/UHF bands, as well as a portion of the 10 meter band where you can try long distant communications with voice and various digital modes. The next class is called the “General” class followed by the “Extra” and each of these licenses allow you to operate in even more of the available Amateur Radio Bands.
