The PVVET will be hosting a FCC amateur radio license examination at the West Springfield public library on Monday, June 11th 2018. Checkin process will start at 5:30 pm. Exam will start at 6pm. We will be testing for all licenses. We do ask that applicants pre-register here on our website. If you do not currently hold a FCC amateur radio or GMRS license, we ask that you obtain a FCC Registration Number prior to the examination.
Due to time constraints, re-takes will be given at the discretion of the VE team.
Please see our event page for directions and details. If you have any questions about the examination or the PVVET, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
At the time of posting this, we’re about a month away! This will give you plenty of time to study. We suggest that you read our FAQ’s to understand the testing process.
The Pioneer Valley VE Team will be holding free examinations at the West Springfield Public library. This will be open to anyone wishing to obtain and/or upgrade their amateur radio license. We will be advertising examinations to the residents of West Springfield and surrounding areas.
The WSPL is located in the center of West Springfield with easy access from Rt. 5, Rt. 291 and Rt. 91. The library was recently renovated and offers the space and technology that we need to administer examinations.
This past Saturday at the Mt. Tom Amateur Repeater Association’s (MTARA) amateur radio festival, the PVVET administered its first examination. We’ve had 14 applicants and we administered 23 examinations.
For the who passed and/or upgraded at this session, your license has been issued/updated by the FCC. Please check the FCC’s ULS for your information.
