Default Volunteer Exam (VE) Thread

Wow, there seems to be great response from the General and Extra certified members of the club to the idea of getting certified to administer the Amateur Radio License exam. Let's coordinate the activity in this thread.

As of now, we are looking to get together in early January as a group to complete the open book review. While technically speaking it is feasible to participate on an exam team after sending in the paperwork - from a practical perspective it would be best to have certificates and badges. This will take a few weeks time to get processed at the back office. How does the week of January 12, look on your calendars? If we do it on a mid-week night perhaps we could get a bite for dinner and then hit the books.

One other item for us all to be aware of, the regulations are very clear that it is up to a Volunteer Exam Coordinator (VEC) to decide if he needs/or does not need the services of an VE present. Administering the exam is a very serious process and we should prepare for it with that in mind.
