***** NOTICE *****

In accordance with current CDC guidelines, wearing a face mask while indoors, or outdoors where social distancing is not feasible, is required for those individuals who have not been fully vaccinated or who do not have natural immunity. A face mask is recommended for all others. The mask must cover both the nose and mouth. This applies to all WVARA activities.

NOTE:  The wearing of a face mask by all individuals may be required by the local county health department or by the facility hosting the WVARA activity.

All amateur radio examination sessions conducted by the WVARA are coordinated through the Laurel VEC.

  • Licenses are normally issued the next business day following the test session.
  • Pre-registration for an examination session is preferred, but walk-ins are accepted.

    • If you currently hold an amateur radio license or any other license issued by the FCC (GMRS, GRO, etc.), then you already have an FRN.
