    Due to current conditions and real-life work situation, I have no choice to but to step down as Editor. AARC needs someone who can take over. I will donate the publishing software to AARC and offer online training (via Zoom) to whomever can take the job. Contact me at:  editor [at] austinhams.org

    Can't wait for in-person exams? There are several groups around the country now providing Remote Amateur License Exam Sessions. (Sorry... NO remote sessions from Austin exam coordinators.) Each group will have their own requirements for your testing environment.

    Most of the requirements involve a "sterile" testing environment - one computer, one monitor, and nothing in the room that could be used for assistance (cheating) during the exam. The sessions will require a smart phone to be used to show examiners your ID and to scan the room prior to examination. The computer will require a web camera and microphone for monitoring during the exam. Please review the requirements for each individual session to make sure you can meet the requirements. 

    Visit this site: https://hamstudy.org/sessions for a list of testing sessions. Note: The list includes in-person exams, so be sure it says "Remote" session.

    Per the FCC's Public Notice released April 30, 2020. "We make clear here that nothing in the FCC’s rules prohibits remote testing, and prior FCC approval is not required to conduct remote tests."  So... Remote testing IS allowed!  Full text here: https://docs.fcc.gov/public/attachments/DA-20-467A1.pdf

    Unfortunately, the W5YI and ARRL VEC exams in Austni will not be held remotely. Someone mentioned that the San Antonio club is offering remote testing, but no details were available yet.

    John's TCARES presentation on VARA FM "inspired" me to finally get digital going on my rigs. This month's main article is how I'm using a SignaLink interface with different radios that require different cabling.

    Also in this issue, links to several other sound card interfaces for running digital on your rig.  The usual sections are also included: Action on the Airwaves, Just for Fun, and Calendar of Events.
