The Public Information canopy will offer information about amateur
radio to the general public. As the name implies, this is the place to
get information about amateur radio, either by picking up one of the
many brochures available, or speaking with someone who will
(hopefully) answer any questions you may have about any aspect of the
Amateur Radio Service.
VE Testing (Walk-Ins Welcome)
Volunteer Examiners (VE's) will be available at 11:00 AM to
administer all classes of amateur radio license exams.
