Testing Session June 20th, 2020

June 20th, 2020 @ 11 AM:

Because of the COVID-19 situation we have missed 2 testing sessions already this year.  We have people that are waiting to test and decided to have a testing session on June 20th.  This will be one unlike we have ever done before.  Because we are still limited by the number of people we can have inside in a group, we are going to do the testing outside.

For at least this June session we are going to setup tables in my front yard and driveway so we can have a testing session.  We are also adding some additional requirements like masks, one time use tests instead of our regular booklets and more.  You can find the details here: http://frederickarc.org/ham-radio-testing/.  If you are interested in testing be sure to read that page so you know everything that is required.  Also, please pre-register for the test from the link on that page.

I have one popup that I can use to help keep everyone out of the sun (or rain) but if you have one we could borrow we can setup a couple.

We will also need some VE’s for this session.  I am curious to see how large of a turnout we have since testing has been basically not happening for a few months.

Corona Update

I’m sure it goes without saying that all club functions are postponed indefinitely. Please be safe, wash your hands frequently and maintain social distancing. There is a strong possibility that Field Day will be cancelled this year but there is no official announcement. I will provide updated information when I have something to report.
