The Foothills Amateur Radio Club / Wilkes County WCARS VE Group


The Foothills Amateur Radio Club in conjunction with the Western Carolinas Amateur Radio Society (WCARS) operates a VE group providing testing sessions in and around the Wilkes County area.

Testing sessions are usually run at the end of each of the Amateur Radio license classes that FARC runs through the Wilkes Community College Continuing Education program.

Please check our event calendar for the next testing session.
