March 11 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
An event every month that begins at 1:00pm on day Second of the month, repeating indefinitely
Typically, there are 10 sessions scheduled every year, generally held at 1 PM (Eastern Time) on the second Sunday of the month, with the following exceptions:
- May – No VE session is held in May as it coincides with the Mother’s Day holiday
- August – No VE session is held at the SVARC clubhouse, as there is a VE session held in conjunction with the SVARC Berryville Hamfest (held the first Sunday in August annually).
DISCLAIMER – Inclement weather can cause last-minute cancellation of a VE session. If there is any question with regard to whether a VE session will be held or not, please contact Alan Moeck (WA2RPX) – his callsign at arrl dot net.
In years past, the date for June would shift to the first Sunday in June to prevent a conflict with the Ol’ Virginia Hams (W4OVH) hamfest in Manassas as the Prince William County Fairgrounds. It appears that no conflict exists for the 2017 hamfest, so the plan is to hold the June 2017 session the second Sunday in June to stay consistent with the standard pattern.
While walk-ins are certainly welcome, it is best to contact Alan and confirm status with him the session that you are planning to attend.
