FCC Amateur Radio Service Licensed VE Testing Program

The Bedford County Amateur Radio Society (BCARS) is hosting a second “Ham in a Day” event, an opportunity for those interested in becoming a ham radio operator to take the FCC test. It will be held at the Bedford County Christian Church, 10229 Lincoln Highway Everett, PA 15537. The event will take place Saturday, September 20th from 8am-6pm. There will also be an additonal free study session on Friday, September 19th from 7pm-9pm.

“Ham in a Day” helps participants review the actual FCC questions and correct answers in the morning followed by taking the FCC tests. It is open to anyone interested, and licensed hams are on-hand to answer questions during the study. Tests start at 2pm and will continue until 6pm.

Testing includes the three Amateur Radio license classes, TECHNICIAN, GENERAL, and EXTRA. The event is open to anyone interested and there is no charge to attend or take a test.

Please bring a recent photo ID (example: school ID, US passport, driver’s license), or a current FCC license . At the session, we will provide study materials (booklets containing the actual FCC question and answer license pools).

Ham in a Day is intended to be a fun, non-stressful way to get involved in ham radio. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided. At our last Ham in a Day, we welcomed 14 new hams radio operators as well as several ham upgrades.

If you are interested in studying before-hand, we invite you to check out the same questions you will see the day of the event by visiting these ham radio websites: http://www.qrz.com/hamtest/or http://www.eham.net/exams/.
