VE testing for ham licensing is generally the fourth Thursday of 'even' months, however June is held on a Saturday in alignment with Field Day operations at the Field Day Site. Februrary is not scheduled, as many of our 'snowbirds' are in the south for warmth (a sign our club average age is rising). Also, December can be difficult due to Christmas - so watch our schedule for details. The please see details on SARA's VE testing page.

RF Exposure can lead to safety concerns and you should use caution to protect yourself and others. See the following links for further details:
As part of an Amateur Radio Station, you must do and keep a copy of RF exposure analysis of your station. If you do not, then you are operating illegally!
Some needs going forward may be easier if you start organizing now. Here are some of our thoughts to assist when just starting out in the hobby.
Library ~ What do you add and in what form? (electronic or paper or both).
Workbench ~ Suggested equipment and thoughts about what/when to add equipment.
Knowing which frequency to operate on is important on our ham bands. Also, keeping communications coordinated with a proper phonetic alphabet and abbreviations is something we need to support. Tis keeps us 'legal' and helps prevent interference on our bands.
SARA has a page on this topic. Go to Why be a HAM.
