I am in English Indiana and i am having the hardest time finding a exam location . the closest is about 50 miles from me at the end of this month.. After that they are 75+ miles from me..Does anyone know if the exam searches like you find here,arrl,and other places
are complete , or is there a more complete search site??  If not how would i go about getting a exam location and time set up for here , possibly at the local library?.. Thanks

There really is not a "complete" list anywhere on the web site.  Check www.arrl.org and www.w5yi.org as well as here on eham.

The ARRL site lists actual exam dates if the teams have sent in that information.

The W5YI site lists contacts that you could call and find out about exams.

Another approach is to do a web search and see if there is a club in your area that has a web site.  Then call one of the club officers and perhaps they have some information on local but unpublished exam dates and sites.

Looking at your location on Yahoo maps, you may have a tough time finding anything close.  You just might have to bite the bullet and travel a bit.

Can you travel to Louisville, KY? I think it's the closest big city.

That might be your best opportunity because there are several clubs there active in the VE (volunteer examiner) program. Two active clubs are the Bullitt Amateur Radio Society -- called the BARS club-- and the Amateur Radio Transmitting Society -- called the ARTS club.

I know BARS has a web site. I think ARTS does too. They will have exam info posted.

License exams are available monthly in the Red Cross building in downtown Louisville, according to the club web sites from the BARS and ARTS clubs.

But this is an even closer site to where you live:

 NEW ALBANY, IN

Indiana University Southeast
4201 Grant Line Road (3 Lights North of Route 265 on the Left)
Fee $10.00

    Third Saturday of February, April, June, August, October and December
    Testing from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM.
    Contact Dick Truax K9RT at (812) 246-6377 for more information.

This is from the BARS club web site.

Sorry, I didn't write down the URLs for those two clubs. I just Googled them and then went to the club sites.

Good luck on your exams!
