Welcome to the K5KTF Central Texas Amateur Radio page.
VE Session information
Due to recent overwhelming interest and being a small facility,
we are now limiting sessions to 20 participants, so please email
firstname.lastname@example.org to register for the session you wish to attend.
When you pass your initial exam, you have the opportunity to take the
next level exam for no extra fee. I highly encourage everyone who does
pass to at least try the next level, even if you havent studied.
You will get to see what you may need to study for.
If you do not pass, you may retake the exam for an extra $15
and you will get a different exam booklet.
If your General or higher license is expired >2 years, bring
printed proof of your previous license, take the Technician exam,
and upon passing,you will receive a "paper upgrade" to your previous
class license. You will be assigned the next sequential callsign. If your
old call is still available, you would need to file for a "vanity" call
to get your old callsign back.
When you pass, DO NOT LEAVE until you sign and
receive your CSCE certificate
