The Sun City Hilton Head Amateur Radio Club is offering its members a one-time opportunity to upgrade their license at the reduced cost of $10 for the exam fee. This reduced fee is available to members only but applies to any license upgrade exam at a special VE session.

In addition to the reduced fee, this exam session will be the first conducted with the ExamTools electronic testing environment. Because of this, walk in candidates cannot be accommodated.

This special exam session will be held on May 3, 2023, at the Bayside Room at the Lakehouse at 1 pm. To schedule your exam contact Dennis, AC4DH, at 207-350-1350 or AC4DH@arrl.net
