2022 testing dates are:
NEW: April 16 and

We have two items that will drive a couple of additional testing opportunities in 2022:
1) The FCC will start requiring a $35 fee from all applicants, effective April 19, 2022. We have added a testing session for Saturday, April 16, 2:30pm at the Graham Street Baptist Church (514 Graham St, Paris, TX 75460). COMPLETE
2) Long-time Club member (and current member, RRVARC board of directors) Mel Toye (K5KEY) is conducting Technician classes at his church. The location is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (3060 Pine Mill Rd, Paris, TX 75460) on Saturday, April 23 and Saturday, April 30. These classes will be from 8am-5pm each Saturday and there will be an hour break for lunch. At the end of Day 2 there will be a testing session at about 4pm. COMPLETE
If you plan to attend either of these testing sessions, particularly if you are not slated to take Mel’s class and you wish to test there that day, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will follow up with you.
Please scroll down and note the other details such as the requirement to have an FRN prior to testing.
