Volunteer Examinations

Once I can verify active VE teams and regular test sessions in Oregon, I will post them here. Please contact me (ab7zq@arrl.org) with the contact information and details.

Exam test fee is $14 for one or more elements taken on the same day. If upgrading, bring the original and a copy of your signed FCC license, and any CSCE to be credited. You will also need your social security number, FRN or TIN number and identification, such as a drivers license.
