Amateur Radio Test Session Sites

Amateur Radio license examinations are on a regular basis in the Eastern North Carolina area by ARRL certified Volunteer Examiners. Central North Carolina testing is done by the ARRL, W4VEC, and W5YI volunteer examiners. The testing fee increased to $15.00 for 2011 and one test fee can cover all three elements of the test.
