New QCARC Meeting and VE Exam Location

We are please to announce an interim monthly meeting location for the Quad County Amateur Radio Club, as well as the ARRL VE Exams. The meeting location is the Chatterbox along Rte. 219 south of Brockway. Please keep in mind the change of day/date as we had to make the change to make the accommodation to have the meeting. The 7:00 PM meeting time remains. Beginning July, our  meetings at the Chatterbox, will be held on the third Tuesday of the month at 7:00 PM.

There is a large easy to read sign for the Chatterbox along Rte. 219 in front the building and on the front of the building. It is just north of Highway Equipment, on the right side of 219. Parking is available on the right side of the building with limited parking along the front. Entrance is at the front of the building.

The 911 address and Coordinates for the Chatterbox are:

4902 Route 219, Brockway, PA  15824

41.17904, -78.77871

Some folks have found that it is best to use thee  GPS coordinates instead of the 911 address.

 

An ARRL VE exam is scheduled to be held June 15, 7:00 PM, at the Chatterbox location..

The ARRL VEC Exam Fee for 2021 is $15.00.
That one fee pays for one attempt at each of
the three exam elements.
If a candidate fails
an element at an exam session and wants to
re-test for the same
element, an additional
fee will be required.

Exact amount and Checks made out to ARRL VEC are preferred, if possible.

Please – read the information below on the  new required FRN.

Applicants must use an FCC Registration Number (FRN) for all license transactions with the FCC. Examinees must register in CORES and receive an FRN before exam day. Starting on May 20, electronic batch filed applications that do not include a candidate’s FRN will be rejected. The Social Security/Licensee ID Field will be disabled.

An instructional video provides step-by-step instructions on how to establish a CORES account, which is necessary for licensees to make administrative updates and download electronic license authorizations.

After June 29, all filers must provide an email address on all applications. When an email is provided, applicants will receive an official electronic copy of their licenses once granted (allow incoming email from authorizations@fcc.gov). If no email is provided when filing on or after June 29, applications will be rejected. ARRL VEC suggests that those without access to email to use the email address of a family member or friend.

Licensees need to log in to the Universal Licensing System (ULS) to download their authorizations. The FCC no longer issues paper copies.
