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 Jebberson,

      We saw your comment about wanting to take a ham radio exam which you posted on the website.
      Here is a link to a online search form:

      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,
      John Heartney KG4NXT

  2. 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.
