VEC Program

The Anchorage Amateur Radio Club sponsors testing for all classes of Amateur Radio license, operating as the Anchorage Volunteer Examiner Coordinator. The Anchorage ARC VEC was the first VEC in the nation to be certified, and likewise was the first to give an exam. The Anchorage ARC VEC is virtually alone in the nation in offering testing free of charge to all applicants.
