​FCC Part 97 Rules

Read Part 97. FCC Part 97 Rules can be found at You will certify that you have read and understand FCC Part 97, subpart F, governing Volunteer Examinations, and that you will abide by these rules. You will also abide by the instructions provided by the chairperson of the Greater Los Angeles Amateur Radio Group VEC (GLAARG VEC) verbally, in writing, or on GLAARG Form 202. The GLAARG VE Manual can be found here.


The GLAARG sponsor/mentor process ensures new Volunteer Examiners (VE) have at least one VE that they can turn for questions and help. The application will ask for the callsign of your sponsor/mentor as part of the application process. If you intend to help a particular Session Manager or team, please use their callsign on the application. If you are not already established with a Session Manager or team, you can leave it blank and we will help match you up with a VE to get you started on your GLAARG VE journey.
