Hello, looking to take my Technician exam but I don’t see any in person exam centers in Texas (Johnson City / Austin) area.

I’m in the same boat. I’m taking my test on June 9th online. Do you hear any traffic on your repeaters? I only hear the nets that are scheduled and not really any random discussions, etc.

I contacted the Austin Ham club via their form on the site and have not gotten a response.
