Banks Road April Activity

Five County Ham Radio Enthusiast didn’t start as a VE team.  A couple of us wanted somewhere in Wendell area to go to to talk ham radio without going to Raleigh or Benson. Then one day I saw that the Hamvention didn’t charge for exams and I started asking questions.  I found out that the VECs are able to establish the rates they charge and Laurel VEC made a decision not to charge a fee and that each team took care of their own expenses.  I found out they didn’t have any teams in North Carolina so I started one.  Our first testing session was in Wendell at my friend KJ4MDY’s Peter Eggimann place of business Electronic Products Design. We had a tech in a day class with 9 students.  5 of them passed. Our regional coordinator for Laurel came down to help as it was my first  time leading an exam session.  It would have been a disaster without the support of him and the other VEs from other VECs. Anyway I felt a need to give a brief history of the organization as we approach 400 subscribers.

Thanks to the Laurel VEC and the FCVET of K3UI, KO4W, K4WCA, W2CK and N4MQU everyone once again got what they came for.
