The Aurora Amateur Radio Group conducted their third group remote exam session on Saturday, December 19th, 2020.  Seven applicants had attended the session and one of them passed all three elements!  Today's session was an amazing execution of incredible teamwork by our VE cadre.  The following were on yesterday's exam team:

Andrews, Chuck (W5AD)
DeVeau, John (NO1ME)
Girello, Frank (W3UF)
Hess, Brandin (WL1B)
Perry, Joel (KN4EWI)
Purgert, Dan (AD8GC)
Reed, Irene (KN4ZHL)
Reed, Matt (WT4FU)

All seven applicants who tested with us today walked away with a CSCE.  As the club president, I want to publicly thank my team for being on their feet and for their tireless effort to make this a success.  There is a lot of hard work that goes into each of these sessions, from applicant processing to getting a team put together.  As many continue to find out, we have a profound desire to serve the under served in America and will stop at nothing to make it happen!  If you are interested in learning more about our remote testing program, please visit our page by clicking HERE.
