I noticed today that the Sonoma County Radio Amateurs group is planning Exam Sessions on Saturday 26 September and again on Saturday 14 November.
Given the covid restrictions, they say that at least the 26 September version “will most likely be a Drive-In Exam Session“!
Anyone interested should check out their web site at http://sonomacountyradioamateurs.com/wp/events/ve-testing/
and note that pre-registration is necessary, and that there are a few other items you must take with you to the exam (including your FCC Registration Number, so plan ahead — instructions are on the web site).
We’ll be cheering you on!
As of this date (28 May 2020) I can find no exam definitely available in this region now, but one perhaps in June. ARRL provides a list, but many previously scheduled exams appear to be boiler-plate announcements, and are of doubtful validity due to the Covid-19 restrictions.
However, one examiner is at least regularly updating their situation. If you wish to be examined for a new license or an upgrade and are willing to spend a pleasant day in Petaluma, see the scheduling web page of the Sonoma Mountain Repeater Society at this link: http://smrs.us/classes/ve2020.htm
(So far, the June 13 session has not been canceled).
