March 2022 by the Numbers

The Aurora Amateur Radio Group did another month of great service in March 2022.  Here are the stats as of 11:59pm Alaska Time on Friday, April 1st, 2022:

Number of exam sessions in March 2022: 10
Number of examinees for March 2022: 51
Number of examinations administered in March 2022: 52

While we had an average month as far as numbers are concerned, we learned that the FCC will be implementing a licensing fee as of April 19th, 2022.  We have reacted to this upcoming change by drastically increasing our session capacity to serve as many as we can before the April deadline.  If you or someone you know wants to test with us before the new fees take effect, please consider taking an exam before April 18th, 2022 to ensure you don't have to pay the fee!

In closing, the Aurora Amateur Radio Group remains dedicated to offering a very unique service no matter what comes our way.  We thank all of our active VEs for making this happen!
