VE Testing Sessions
Join us for a testing session to obtain a new amateur radio license or upgrade an existing license. We have a test session once a month directly following our club meetings. This occurs the 3rd Saturday of every month starting at 10:00 am. If you are visiting to take a test feel free to come early and join in our normal monthly meeting.
Check our EVENTS list to find a date that works for you and please register for an exam by choosing the date you are interested in attending and filling out the form.
