Two applicants were tested on 8/5/2019, with David, KM5AT passing his Extra. He was licensed previously as an Advanced.
Others helping with the session were W4BZM, KI5FR, AJ4XK, KL7LS, KJ4RWD AND KK4WDQ. New member and new ham Bob, KN4UDT, assisted with setup and crowd control. He plans on becoming a VE within the next year.
Thanks to Live Oak Baptist Church, NOARC, the applicants, and most of all the other VEs. A special thanks to Ron for getting the Fellowship Hall.
The NOARC Training Team is trying to decide on the next
course to teach later this year of 2019 – the General or the Extra. For those desiring to upgrade, would you
be “Seriously Interested” in
attending an upgrade course? Seriously
Interested means attending six sessions for the General and 12 sessions for
the Extra study course. An exam would be
planned about a week or so after the last class. A
syllabus of topics by instructor would have to be developed, based on
availability, plus a location.
The text to be used is the ARRL License manuals. There are various locations online to take
practice tests. Each session, whether
General or Extra course, is approximately three hours – in the past – from 6:30
to 9:30 pm. The recent locations have
been either the Crestview or Niceville campus of Northwest Florida State
Please contact Bruce, KA5DLV, Mike, W4BZM, or use the Contact

hearing from you by June 1!
