Ham Radio exams ad

Ham Radio Exams

This year, we had 205 candidates who took one or more tests. We had 144 new Technician-class licensees, 22 new General-class, and 6 new Extra-class.

The 205 candidates means we're in the top 5 largest ham radio exams *ever* in the US. (The US has a very large ham radio population generally, so it's reasonable to assume it'd be top-5 worldwide.)

The youngest successful licensee was 13. The oldest was retired.
