Next VE Session is November 5, 2017 at the FCARC Swafest

The next FCARC VE Exam will be Sunday, November 5, 2017 at the FCARC Swapfest in the lower level of Monarch Gardens, 2311 W. Spencer St. Appleton. Walk-ins are welcome. Registration is from 9 to 10 am only! You must show a photo ID when you register for an exam.
If you will be upgrading it is important that you bring a paper copy of your current license. We can not provide copies for you!
Our VEC, the ARRL, sets the fee at $15 cash or check. Checks are to be made out to the ARRL VEC. A failed exam can be retaken, time permitting, but you will be charged another $15.
Cell phone use is not permitted during the exam and must be turned off or silenced. Calculators (non cell phone) are allowed but programmable calculator memories must be cleared. A VE will inspect all calculators.
Successful first license candidates will receive a one year membership to the FCARC. Ask a volunteer examiner for an application.
If you have questions you can reach me at (920) 809-1010 or email me at
