Schedule

The Triangle East Amateur Radio Association (TEARA) and the Smithchart Amateur Radio Society (SCARS) are pleased to announce their 2017 schedule for amateur radio examinations.  Exams are given the third Saturday of every month except July and December at 9:30 a.m. at the Red Cross office in Smithfield, North Carolina.  The Red Cross is located at 801 South Third Street in downtown Smithfield.  Additional directions are given below.

    For 2017, the dates are:

        January 21
        February 18
        March 18
        April 15

        *** No session in December

Directions

To reach the Red Cross traveling from the west or east, take U.S. 70 Business into downtown Smithfield. (U.S. 70 Business is Market Street.)  Look for the intersection with U.S. 301.  If coming from the west, turn right, or if from the east, turn left onto U.S. 301 South.  Go to the next stoplight (about 1/2 mile) and turn right.  (Note that this intersection shows "Brogden Road" to the left, but you want to turn right.)  Go one block to Third Street and turn right.  The Red Cross will be on your right.

If you are coming from the north or south on I 95, take Exit 95 onto U.S. 70 Business West into downtown Smithfield to the intersection with U.S. 301.  Turn left onto U.S. 301 South and follow the directions in the paragraph above.  If you are coming from the north on U.S. 301, follow the same directions given above.  If you are coming from the south on U.S. 301, look for the Brogden Road intersection, which will indicate Brogden Road as a right turn, but turn left at this intersection, and follow the directions above. 

Test Information

If you currently have a valid amateur license, you will need to bring your license and a photocopy of the license.  You will also need a photo I.D, such as a driver license, school, work, or military I.D., or D.M.V. issued I.D. card.  If you are under 18, the team will also accept your photograph with your name in your school yearbook as a picture I.D.

Test fees for this year are still $15.00.

Pre-registration is not required.

The VE team will make every effort to accommodate persons with special needs, such as visually impaired testing.  You are encouraged to contact either of the two VE team liaisons well in advance of the session to advise us of any special needs you may have.
 
Finally, if you successfully upgrade and would like to donate your study guide, tapes or software to TEARA, we will gladly accept the donation to use in an upcoming radio class or to pass on to a prospective ham or upgrade candidate.
