Local Ham license testing is done by a group of Volunteer Examiners headed by Joe Barry -- K7SQ.

Joe can be reached at 541-385-3152 or email him - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Tests are normally given at the Bend Public Library on the south end of the second floor in one of the meeting rooms at 1:00 PM. They are typically given once a month but you should contact Joe for any changes to the schedule.  If you have a lower class license and are wanting to upgrade be sure to bring a copy of your existing FCC license and the original. Bring a couple pencils, a calculator if you wish, and a check to pay the testing fee.  You must also bring two pieces of personal identification such as a driver's license.  If you pass a test you can take the next level test making it possible to take all three levels in one test session. You can also retake a test. For each test OR retake you must pay an additional test session fee.  Arrangements can be made for any special needs, as well as for dates and times.
