Volunteer Examiners Report

Latest Exam Results:

February’s exam session resulted in one candidate coming in for the Technician class test. Our candidate was successful  in passing the test and after taking the Tech exam he opted to take the General and fell a bit short, declared he would be back soon to get his General license.

The March exam session did not have any predeclared or announced candidates so we waited until plenty of time had passed for “walk-ins” to make an appearance, and packed up and returned to our appointed duties elsewhere. Too bad as we were ready and looking forward to seeing someone succeed and walk out grinning.  Nonetheless, we were there, ready and prepared, which is what we do. Thanks go out to all the volunteer examiners who took the time to be at the March, and also the February, test session. We can’t do it without our volunteers.

Our NEXT testing session will be on Saturday, April 29th, at the Justice Center, 1pm sharp. Doors will open at 12:30pm. If you are upgrading or coming for your first license we welcome you and look forward to being of service. Please call Peter, N7IY. His phone number is on the ARRL web site under “exam sessions”,  if you are planning on testing.

If you are a General class, Advanced, or Extra class license holder you can become a Volunteer Examiner and receive accreditation from the ARRL  by passing an open book exam. The service of providing examinations for aspiring Hams is very rewarding and well worth the effort. Nothing feels as good as seeing someone grinning as they are told they PASSED the test.

If you want to get your VE accreditation you can find out all about it here:https://www.arrl.org/become-an-arrl-ve , it is well worth it.

That’s it for this month. I hope you will join us at a meeting or exam. Be well.

73, Bob AD7Z
