Congratulations on being ready to take your Amateur Radio License exam. YOU MUST HAVE YOUR OWN LAPTOP COMPUTER OR TABLET TO TAKE THIS EXAM. EXAM FEE PAYMENT After registering on HamStudy.org you will receive an email from CClark1414@gmail.com within approximately 2 days with payment instructions for your exam. Do not send payment until you receive these instructions. (If you don’t receive this email within 2 days of registering, please check your spam folder.) The $15 exam fee may be paid by your choice of Venmo, or PayPal. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept other forms of payment at this time. Important note: You MUST PAY THE FEE within 48 hours of receipt of that email or you will be de-registered to make room for someone else. If we don’t receive your payment within 48 hours of receipt of payment instructions, we may, at our discretion, cancel your exam reservation to make room for other applicants. MULTIPLE REGISTRATIONS NOT ALLOWED Please do not register for multiple exam sessions (with ours or other VE teams) with the intention of missing later sessions once you pass at an earlier session: By doing so you are denying other candidates the opportunity to register and generating extra work and lost time for the VEs. This exam session is brought to you by K4CXS – Spalding County Amateur Radio Club in Griffin, GA.

 

Thank you and 73,

Chuck Clark, NQ3I

President, Spalding County Amateur Radio Club
