VE Testing

The RATS W5YI VE Team will once again host the license testing at Frostfest. Exams will be offered for all amateur license classes. You can read up on testing protocols at the W5YI website.

The VE testing is held upstairs in the Exhibition Hall, above the main floor of Frostfest. You can take either the stairs or the elevator from the snack bar/lobby area to the upper floor.

You do not have to purchase admission to Frostfest to take an Amateur Radio Licensing exam. But of course if you pass your test and want to shop for some new gear, you will need to purchase a ticket to enter the show (admission is free to those under 18 years old).

Testing will be held from 10:00AM until 1:00PM. Please bring $14 cash, a government issued photo ID, and your original Amateur Radio license (if upgrading to a higher license class). For all new license tests, a Social Security Number is *required*, per FCC regulations.

Before the show, PLEASE DOWNLOAD, PRINT, AND PROPERLY FILL OUT THE REQUIRED NCVEC 605 FORM and bring it with you to the show – this will save you and the testing team LOTS of time!!

Please note that pre-registration and scheduled appointments *are not* available. All testing is by walk-in only, first come first served.

Good luck on your exam!
