The Yellowknife Amateur Radio Society (YARS) welcomes Kevin (VE8KG) to the amateur radio service.  Kevin passed his basic exam with honours on 4 December 2021, invigilated by VE8RT. 

YARS has all the materials needed for one to study and write the Basic Qualification online at:  http://www.ykars.com/index.php/amateur-radio/becoming-an-amateur/basic-qualification-course .  Practice exams are available at the regulator's website:  https://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/025.nsf/eng/h_00040.html .  The exam is nationally set by the Government of Canada.  If you are interested in becoming licensed and in becoming a HAM radio operator, you can study this material and we recommend you seek out an accredited examiner in your territory or province (they can be searched at https://apc-cap.ic.gc.ca/pls/apc_anon/query_examiner_amat$.startup ).  For those in the Northwest Territories, YARS has two accredited examiners, Ron Thompson (VE8RT) and Ian Rennie (VE8IR) .  They can administer exams in Nunavut with approval of Industry Canada. Neither charges a fee for this service as it is a public service and in the interests of the amateur radio service to have newly licensed radio amateurs.
