We are an ARRL Affiliated VE Team and can provide testing services to any club or group that requests our services within the Saint Louis Metro area. Use the contact form to reach us.
In compliance with the new Saint Louis County Library's response to COVID-19, we will not be holding test sessions for the months of May and June. We hope to have more information from our library hosts regarding July - December dates and in-person testing. While there has been discussion regarding online/remote testing, we are continuing to evalute the feasability of this given our resources.
More information regarding the Saint Louis County Library's COVID response can be found here.The Cliff Cave VE Team will continue to monitor the library's response and adjust our test sessions accordingly in compliance with health directives and our library hosts. Please continue to check our website for the most up-to-date information.
