• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Every Tuesday night (with some exceptions) there is a group that administers tests at the Cliff Cave Branch of the St. Louis County Library.

25-Jul-2006
Sponsor: CLIFF CAVE VE TEAM
Time: 7:00 PM (Walk-ins allowed)
Contact: HARRY S NORDMAN
(314)487-4431
Email: AB0SX@HOTMAIL.COM
VEC: ARRL/VEC
Location: ST LOUIS COUNTY LIBRARY/CLIFF CAVE BRANCH
5430 TELEGRAPH RD
DOORS OPEN AT 6:00 PM
CALL AHEAD WHEN POSSIBLE!
OAKVILLE/SAINT LOUIS, MO 63129

You'll need $14 for the VE testing fee and will need to fill out the paperwork. If you pass the test your callsign will appear in the FCC's database in about 3 or 4 days with the paper copy appearing in your mailbox about a week later.

If haven't taken any of the online practice tests I would encourage you to do so. qrz.com, eham.com, aa9pw.com, and hamtestonline.com are great places to do that.

Good luck and hope to hear you on the air soon.

I used HamTestOnLine and it was great, the other listed are good also, I just like the way it shows your progression with each practice exam taken.
