AREA (V.E.) VOLUNTEER EXAMINE SESSIONS

Okay, WHAT IS A VE Session?  It is a name used to confuse NEW Hams before they can become Hams!

No, really, I have seen folks at almost every Ham Convention I have been to stand right in front of the V.E. sign (telling you where the test is located)

and ask "Where do I take my Ham test at ... No one bothered to explain that VE session and the test ARE the same thing.

A VE Session is a test session, for people to become Hams or for Hams to upgrade their licenses.

The VE refers to the great folks that VOLUNTEER (Volunteer Examiners)  their time to administer the tests
