In view of many factors it has become necessary to suspend any upcoming examination sessions. I did not wish to have to do this, but it would be unsafe for everyone involved to ignore the obvious risks associated with the close social contact that would be required to properly hold and monitor a license examination session. As soon as possible after the COVID-19 infection and death rate has peaked and begun to decline, a session, or sessions, will be scheduled to obtain or upgrade your license. It is anticipated that this will not occur until after the Governor lifts his travel and stay at home restrictions.  If you would like to be placed on a “waiting list” please email mike@n6krv.org and you will be contacted as soon as sessions are once again available. These sessions will not necessarily be on the normal second Saturday of the month, so if you have a preferred day of the week and time of day please let me know in your email. The team of examiners will try our best to get going as soon as practical and hold as many sessions as needed until things return to “normal”, whenever and whatever that turns out to be. Mike KA6IYS – Lead Examiner
