VE Testing

The FRRL, in conjunction with the ARRL VEC, sponsors regular amateur examinations. While these are normally scheduled the third Thursday of every other month, sessions may be moved due to exam space and VE availability. Ad-hoc sessions are planned during major events and will be added to the schedule here as well.

Thursday July 18th
Thursday September 19th
Thursday November 21st

Study Materials

The FRRL periodically sponsors license education classes.  Information is available on the Education page.  Our classes use the ARRL license manuals for each level.  The technician level class uses the current edition of the ARRL Ham Radio License Manual.
Remember, there is no Morse Code requirement any longer to obtain your ham radio license!
