The latest ARRL Letter (September 10) included the following report (from a Volunteer Examiners Coordinators meeting) that may be of interest to those ready to get or upgrade a license:
“Remote administration of amateur radio exam sessions was the hot topic of discussion…. Since April 1, ARRL VEC, W5YI-VEC, and the Greater Los Angeles Amateur Radio Group VEC (GLAARG) have remotely tested more than 4,000 applicants using videoconferencing and online examinations. …..Exam candidates can search for upcoming remote online examination dates on the HamStudy website.” [Click on the website’s name to find more pages.]
That website has more information on the procedures and how to arrange for an examination.
