Aloha,

The Hawaii team providing video supervised Internet Amateur Radio
licensing exams just passed the 100-candidate mark on August 10th with a
session testing ten candidates simultaneously. Candidates from all
Hawaiian Islands, Puerto Rico,  Guam and US military bases in Okinawa
have had an opportunity to sit for licenses.  The high pass rate of 95%
is most likely due to candidates having time to prepare for the exam.

Success is due to the team of volunteer examiners that contribute their
time. ZOOM meeting video lends itself to handling three candidates per
session and each requires three VEs.  The 1 to 1 ratio of candidates to
VEs makes planning sessions important.  Fortunately, the team of 15 VEs
has volunteers from Oahu, Maui, the Big Island, California, and the
Pacific.  Frequently hams from, Okinawa and Guam are helping license and
upgrade hams in Hawaii.

It looks like testing opportunities for Hawaii residents will continue
to be needed for a while longer. Please pass on the word that remote
video testing is available and all are welcome to register for a test at
