The Pioneer Valley Volunteer Examination Team (PVVET) is currently working with the West Springfield Public Library (WSPL) to provide FREE amateur radio examinations to the public for 2019. We’re planning to host examinations in July, September and December. The venue has been recently renovated and it provides the perfect exam environment and the location is perfect (just minutes from I-90, I-91, I-290, route 20 and route 5). They have been wonderful hosts and hope to continue doing exams there.
With this announcement, it’s a perfect time to start studying for your exam if you haven’t done so already. There are multiple ways you can study. Since the PVVET is about providing FREE examinations so we strongly suggest to use Dan Romanchik’s (KB6NU) “No Nonsense Study Guide” along with the flash cards and practice exams at Hamstudy.Org . Both are free of charge as Dan gives out free PDF copies of his technician’s license guide. You can obtain your FCC Amateur Radio license absolutely FREE of any charge. If you want detailed information we also suggest the ARRL’s “Technician License Manual” ($29.95) for those who want to learn the material inside and out.
As with all PVVET examinations, we require candidates to obtain a FCC Registration Number (FRN) and pre-register prior to the examination. We will make an announcement when registrations are open. If you have any questions, please refer to our FAQ section
