VE Sessions

Do to Covid-19 restrictions, VE sessions have been suspended.

Under normal conditions, VE sessions held by the DLARC are normally held the Friday after the monthly club meeting on ODD NUMBERED months. 

 We also hold VE Testing Sessions during Field Day and at the conclusion of all of the training classes.

Testing is held at the Northampton County 911 Center next to the Gracedale Complex in Nazareth.  Testing starts at 7 PM.  Please arrive early to fill out paperwork ahead of time.

Preregistration is required.  Please contact Bob Green at to confirm your attendance.


Required at the testing:

  • $15 testing fee (exact change or check made out to “ARRL-VEC”)
  • Photo ID if you are taking the test for the first time, or if you are testing for an upgrade, a photocopy of your current license from the FCC ULS database (will not be returned)
  • You may bring a calculator (no smart phones or tablets or phablets or the like) and if it is a programmable calculator, you must demonstrate that all programmable memories are cleared.   If you don’t have a calculator that meets these requirements, we can provide one.

Scratch paper will be provided.

Once you receive the test materials, you may not leave the room until you turn them in to be scored.
