Maple Grove Radio Club (, and Minnesota Youth Amateur Radio Council ( have received permission of the ARRL VEC and the FCC to conduct completely online video-supervised testing with strict rules and protocols for maintaining the integrity of the testing environment.

Candidates may sign up to be on the waiting list, but you may not sign up for an exam without going through the queue and being invited to do so. In some places around the country, the waiting list is in the thousands. We have not reached that level yet.

We will give priority in this order:
1. Anyone who has been enrolled in one of our radio courses,
2. Amateur Extra candidates who need the test before the June 30th question pool change,
3. Candidates within Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota

For more information and to sign up for the waiting list visit:
