Additional information:  If you would like to stay for it, after the exam session we have a question and answer session. Our experienced VE's will assist you with whatever questions you might have about getting started with ham radio or any another part of ham radio. If you've purchased a new radio and need help programing it. Bring it! We will gladly assist you in learning how to program it. If someone is ready to take the test, and  needs to take the exam while its fresh in their mind. Contact Greg, he might be able to arrange a special session.
