June 2021 by the Numbers

Dated: July 3rd, 2021

To begin, please accept my personal apologies with getting this report out later than expected.  It has been very busy over the past couple of weeks with the development of HamExamGen version 2.0 and more is to follow.  The Aurora Amateur Radio Group remained busy with remote examinations in the month of June.  Here are the stats as of 11:59pm Alaska Time on Wednesday, June 30th, 2021:

Total number of applications received as of this writing:    667
Number of applications received in June 2021:    95
Number of exam sessions in June 2021:    18
Number of examinees for June 2021:    87
Total number of examinations administered since December 2020:    833
Total amount of monetary donations from examinees in June 2021:    $290.00

June became very busy near the end.  We are developing the next major release of our exam platform and that has taken a considerable amount of time.  For those who haven't been made aware, we have scaled our exam schedule to Tuesdays and Thursdays.  This allows our VE team the opportunity to have more time for themselves and maximizes our capabilities based on cadre availability.

As we look ahead to the rest of this year, we remain willing to look at innovative ways to keep our service unique.  For those who remain faithful in their service to our VE program, the Aurora Amateur Radio Group thanks you for your incredible service!  Keep up the great work!
