July 2018 Testing

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you are having a good weekend and trying to stay cool.
We had three come and test yesterday in Fulton and we had a very successful testing session.
Ended up with a new technician, a general upgrade, and an extra upgrade. I will post call signs and upgrades tomorrow after they are posted on theFCC database.

The VE’s are very happy with the new Laurel VE Group testing procedures and the testing operation and results. We are considering going to 6 testing sessions a year, with one every other month to accommodate more new operators and upgrades for current operators.
We would like some input to see if this is a good option for everyone or if we need to stay as is.

Well thats all for now so stay COOL and see you on the air.

W1LAW, Boby

VE Testing July 21, 2018

Its that time again.
We will have a testing session so this is just a reminder that we will be testing on Saturday July 21st, 2018 (this next Saturday) for new amateur radio license and upgrade existing license for radio enthusiast and current ham radio operators. We will be at the Old Fulton Grammar School located at 603 South Cummings Street, Fulton, MS. We will begin testing about 9 am and continue until about 11 am. If no one shows for testing by 9:30 we will close testing for the day. If you are prepared and interested in taking your Technician, General, or Extra test, please come on up. No fee required, please bring two forms of ID one needs to be a photo (ie, drivers license) and any CSCE's (certificates of completion) you have earned and/or a copy of your current license if applicable.

If you are testing for the Technician license, PLEASE, go to the FCC web page and apply for a FRN before you test. Here is the web page:


Bring your FRN number with you for the testing paperwork, as we would rather have this than your Social Security information.

Please contact Chuck at chuck@selectconnect.net or Bobby at w1law@yahoo.com for more information or notification that you intend to test that day.
Please go to www.laurelvec.com for more testing sessions for your area.

We look forward to seeing you there and Good Luck!!

30’ Tower for sale in Tupelo

We received a request from a man in Tupelo about selling a tower. He is listing it as a 30 foot tower.
His name is Jim Minor and this is his facebook page and photos of the tower. Please contact via Facebook if anyone is interested. Thanks for the read, Bobby

$100, yes anything attached to it go with it. I think the homeowner was a truck driver and possibly used it to communicate with others.
