VE Team Makes First Ham

This past Sunday the TriARC Volunteer Examiner (VE) Team members gathered to administer their first testing session. A former Marine, with an extensive background in radio, was having trouble finding a Ham radio exam to work with his schedule. He was interested in getting into the hobby, but was met with the barrier of finding a testing session.

So the TriARC VE team, which was designed to be extremely flexible, mobilized. Comprised of three VE’s and a tote filled with paperwork, the Team was able to meet the prospective Ham at the San Marcos Library. The testing opportunity provided a great live-run for the VE Team, and the entire testing process was conducted. In the end the VE Team christened their first Ham, who received his callsign a mere sixteen hours after taking his exam.

Overall the event, though small, was a great success. TriARC was able to give back to the Ham community and further refine the testing process to be even more efficient and streamlined.
