Watch this page for Upcoming amateur radio license exam sessions. I will attempt to update this page every Sunday by 12:00 Noon (Eastern) from information on the 12 County Net, heard on the KQ1L Linked Repeater System. Dixmont is 146.850(-)[100.0]) at 09:30 (Eastern). Information is also found on the ARRL Website on the Exam Session Search Page and select your state (Maine) or other criteria and hit search.

I also do Online Ham Exams with another group called GLAARG, the Greater Los Angeles Amateur Radio Group. They have teams testing all the time and you sign up to test through the Ham Study Website. Here you can see testing for ham licenses is busy all the time. The teams I test with are GLAARG teams, such as WB6OHW, W8WOT, N1CCK, and others. Many people use this online testing platform now and charge different prices/fees -- GLAARG exams are $10.00 online. If you want help in doing this, use the phone number at the top and call me, I will help you get registered.

We are going to make it easy for you -- we will put them here too. Any In-person sessions I will be a Volunteer examiner for will be in a Goldenrod color, Online sessions through Ham Study / Exam Tools are not listed here but use link above to find LOTS of those. Any accessibility or special accommodations for tests (mainly in-person ones) need to be known in advance. I will add contact info when available for each test session leader.

Did you just pass your test? Want to know if you have a Call Sign yet? -- Online turnaround time is FAST! Use the FCC License Search Page to find out.
