The W8LT VE Team is a group of amateur radio operators (hams) affiliated with W8LT the amateur radio station and the Amateur Radio and RF Club at the Ohio State University. We started doing ham radio license exams in March of 2022.

Volunteer Examiners (VEs) are authorized by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to administer the written examinations required to obtain an amateur radio license.

We are affiliated with the Laurel VEC, one of several Volunteer Examiner Coordinators authorized to give the exams. A feature of the Laurel VEC is that they NEVER charge a fee for administering an exam. Some other VECs do have an exam fee.

Members of the W8LT VE Team hold amateur radio licenses at the General or Extra Class level and have been accredited by the Laurel VEC.

Thank you and 73.
