Ham Radio Test Session
June 29, 2011

“Last Chance General”

The Benicia Amateur Radio Club will conduct an ARRL VE Ham Radio test session at the downtown Benicia Fire Station at 150 Military West on Wednesday, June 29th, 2011 between 6:00 PM and 9:00 PM. Cutoff to start testing is 8 PM. This will be the last opportunity to take the General exam using the current question pool. All exam levels will be offered. Enter via the West 2nd Street door – not the front door of the Fire Station. The Benicia Amateur Radio Club is a community-service-oriented non-profit group that works with the Benicia Fire Department and the Benicia Emergency Response Team to provide communications in the event of a disaster.

The examination session is administered under guidelines issued by the Federal Communications Commission by accredited examiners. This session occurs periodically in Benicia and prospective Ham operators or existing Hams interested in upgrading their license are invited to attend. The exam administration fee is $15, cash or check. (Sorry, no debit or credit cards accepted.) Applicants must bring a government issued photo ID (DL or passport). In the case of children or when no photo ID is available, please email (address below) for additional info.

Existing licensees wishing to upgrade must bring their original license plus a photocopy of it. Retests of a failed exam at the same test session will require payment of an additional test fee and a different test will be administered. Walk-ins accepted – no pre-registration is required. As required by the FCC, applicants will be required to provide their S.S. number or their FRN number as part of the application process. Additional information, contact ab6hb@arrl.net.
