VE TESTING THIS WEEKEND!!!
We will have a testing session so this is just a reminder that we will be testing on Saturday January 19th, 2019 (third 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.
PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT UNTIL THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT GOES BACK TO FULL OPERATION THERE WILL BE NO NEW LICENSE OR UPGRADES UPLOADED TO THE FCC UNTIL THAT TIME. SORRY FOR THE DELAY AND INCONVENIENCE BUT IT IS BEYOUND THE CONTROL OF THIS CLUB OR LAUREL VEC.*****If you are testing for the Technician license, PLEASE, you must go to the FCC web page and apply for a FRN before you test. Here is the web page:
You must first register with the FCC before you can have a FRN issued by following the instructions on that page. You must bring your FRN number with you for the testing paperwork, as is soon to be the only number you will have to complete the application (No SSN's).
Please contact Bobby at firstname.lastname@example.org or Chuck at email@example.com for more information or notification that you intend to test that day.
Walk-ins are accepted however, we would like to know if you intent to take the test and make sure that you have your FRN prior to coming to Fulton.
Please go to www.laurelvec.com for more testing sessions for your area and go to www.w5nem.org for a complete list of scheduled exams on our blog calendar for NEMRA.
