New information for the General Exam

VE Test Session

The National Council of Volunteer Examiner Coordinators (NCVEC) has released a 2nd Errata for the 2023 – 2027 General Class Element 3 Question Pool. The NCVEC Question Pool Committee (QPC) has released the second revision of the 2023 – 2027 General Class element 3 Question Pool. This revision supplants the question pools released on December 1, 2022, and February 1, 2023. The changes are reflected in the new General pool downloadable files, dated April 15, 2023. Three questions have been withdrawn from use and removed from the pool: G6B09, G9C06, and G9D13. Most of the other questions had minor changes. ARRL VEC teams are advised to check the NCVEC website or the ARRL website regularly for updates to the question pools, which may include errata and withdrawn questions. The new General Class Element 3 Question Pool goes into effect on July 1, 2023.

Don’t forget, our next VE Testing Session will be held at the Abilene Public Library, Mall of Abilene, 4310 Buffalo Gap Rd, Saturday May 6th at 1 p.m. local.
