On March 14, 2020, OVH held a VE session. We had a host of people from Maryland and Arlington because several other VE sessions had been cancelled. We had 17 candidates and they earned 10 new technician , 1 new general and 3 new extra licenses. One fellow went from no license to Extra. Three candidates did not earn a new license. The VEs assisting were John, KG4NXT; Al, KB4BHB; Chick, KC1PIA; Luther, WA3FMO; Steve, N4OGR; Steve, KB4OF; Mark , WA4KFZ; George, K4GVT; Byron, AK4XR; and Ray , KM4EKR.

Hi I would like to take the exam, if you could send me some links and info how I can do that, please
We saw your comment about wanting to take a ham radio exam which you posted on the w4ovh.net website.
Here is a link to a online search form: http://www.arrl.org/find-an-amateur-radio-license-exam-session
Unfortunately, most of them are cancelled because of the virus. There is much talk of virtual exams, but they are not readily available as a practical matter.
Before you take the exam, it helps to prepare for it. There is a online course that you can take, which I bought for my son-in-law and also for one of the OVH wives. Both passed on the first try.
You can try for free. If you decide you like it, it is $25.
If you have anymore questions, feel free to contact me direct at 703 789 6449.
Thanks and good luck,

Any re-thinking on a June exam date? With the hamfest cancelled, there could still be some examinees willing to social distance. I am in Winchester, looking for a June Extra exam site.
