Volunteer examiners will offer amateur radio license examinations in Fort Wayne May 5. They will conduct the exams at the offices of the Boy Scouts of America Anthony Wayne Area Council, 8315 West Jefferson Blvd.
Despite the West Jefferson address, the office is accessed by taking the access road across from the entrance to Lutheran Hospital. The Boy Scout office is at the south end of that access road, just beyond Extended Stay America. The examiners will be in the basement, next to the Kitchen.
They will offer exams for all classes of amateur radio licenses. No appointment is necessary. Persons wishing to take exams may check in from 9 to 11 a.m. They will need $14 for the exam fee, a photo ID and a second form of ID. Amateurs who hope to upgrade to a higher license class must also bring a photo copy of their current license to leave with the application.
After May 5, testing will be available two more times in Fort Wayne this year; August 4 at the Boy Scout office and November 17, during the Fort Wayne Hamfest at the Allen County War Memorial Colisuem.
