License exams in Fort Wayne Aug. 4

The next scheduled Amateur Radio testing here in Allen County will be held on Saturday August 4th. The test location is at the Fort Wayne area Boy Scout Council office. The Boy Scout office address is 8315 West Jefferson Blvd here in Fort Wayne. Despite the West Jefferson address, the office is accessed by taking the access road across from the entrance to Lutheran Hospital. Take the access road to the very end and the Boy Scout office is the last building. We will be in the basement next to the Kitchen.
All classes of license testing will be given. No appointment necessary. We will take checkins from 9 to 11 AM. The cost for W5YI testing remains at $14 for 2018. You will need a photo ID and a second form of ID. If you are testing for a license upgrade you will also need to bring a photo copy of your current license to leave with the paperwork.
 The final test sessions in Allen County for 2018 will be on Saturday November 17th at the Fort Wayne Hamfest.
