LFARS is an absolutely amazing group to work with in obtaining your Amateur Radio license.  Testing was AWESOME.  They are not just a group that does testing, they are here for you to help you grow as a radio operator.  Check them out today!!!

DANIEL E WROTE . . .
I found LFARS on line and reached out to them about remote testing for my General.  I was apprehensive as I consider myself 'Tech Challenged' but it was a great experience!  I was welcomed and assisted all the way through the process.  Given clear instructions and a timeline via email that made the process simple and easy.  When test time came the VE's were GREAT!  They genuinely made me feel like family!  I would highly recommend LFARS to anyone testing for or upgrading their license!!

HUGH B WROTE . . .
I was deeply moved by the generosity of spirit, both in conversation and in the time and effort involved, from this group.  The process was wonderful.  The entire experience was both professional and warm-hearted.  Thank you so much.

I can't think of a more efficient and accommodating way to test for my amateur radio licenses while overseas.  LFARS brought the exam room to me and their polished system was very easy to follow.  I just had to login in, follow directions, and take the test.  Couldn't be more pleased!

JENSEN F WROTE . . .
The exam experience was great!  The whole staff was friendly, supportive, and easy to work with.  Would recommend these guys to anyone!

RIO D WROTE . . .
This was my 2nd test with this group and I cannot say enough good things about them!!!!  SO supportive and did the best job helping me to relax before my Amateur Extra exam.

LEWIS A WROTE . . .
The emails leading up to the exam were very easy to understand and the volunteer examiners were great!  I look forward to working with LFARS when I test for my general License.

GARY S WROTE . . .
You all were great and friendly, easy to use and navigate.  I will be back for more tests!

JAMES D WROTE . . .
Truly professional experience with the LFARS team.  Clearly outlined expectations prior to the remote examination, no-nonsense instructions with a touch of humor.  I appreciated the experience, and the folks that were able to help me achieve my new license class.  Stand up group, highly recommended.

DALE T WROTE . . .
The registration and examination was smooth and efficient.  The team was friendly and helpful, as you would expect.  Great job.

DONALD H WROTE . . .
What a great group of testers.  They made me feel relaxed and comfortable in taking the test.

GLENN K WROTE . . .
I took all three of my exams with Last Frontier.  My experience was great.  A very great organization and and a great asset to the Amateur Radio community.  I would strongly sugggest taking your exams with them.

PAUL E WROTE . . .
I thought it was great and Max AI7LG, Dennis K5DSC, Charles W5AD were wonderful in explaining everything.  I would suggest adding UTC time as well as Alaska Time since hams are used to UTC.

JOSHUA A WROTE . . .
Great experience, smoother than the paper process, as well as quicker!

RIO D WROTE . . .
Best group to test with!  VERY nice, knowledgeable and accommodating.

BRIAN P WROTE . . .
It was great they were very understanding when I had technical difficulties.

DAVID R WROTE . . .
Today was the second time I tested with LFARS.  They delivered an experience consistent with the exam I passed with them.  Their light hearted approach reduced some of the nature rest anxiety and helped me to perform better on the test.

JAMES M WROTE . . .
Everyone was friendly and patient the whole time.  Getting me set up at the beginning with the guy in Arizona (can't remember his name) took a while because of me being tech dumb, but he was very patient and got me ready to go.

WALTER B WROTE . . .
Glad I could take the exam online!  It was super cool to interact with the examiners and it felt very personal.  I didn't get a pre-exam email (besides the one 10 mins before exam time), which caught me off guard--I was expecting an email a day or two beforehand confirming the exam time.

GLENN K WROTE . . .
I would like to thank Last Frontier for the easy exam process.  My examiners are an asset to Ham Radio as well as this organization.  I would refer any one to test with Last Frontier.

TREVOR F WROTE . . .
Very positive experience.  The Volunteer Examiners were professional and made taking my exam easy and direct.  I will be recommending anyone I know wanting to test to LFARS.

JAMES A WROTE . . .
Very Responsive.  Brandin contacted me quickly responding to my initial email.  Your website is clear to understand and detailed as to the process and expectations in taking the test.  The VE test team was friendly, and professional.  Overall, it was a great experience.  Thanks.

STEVEN M WROTE . . .
From start to finish, first class.  Directions clear and thorough with well thought out processes, procedures and excellent communications.  Everyone was friendly, welcoming, easy going yet professional and highly supportive.  The whole experience they provide is stress-free, pleasurable, and a convenient experience that couldn't have been made any easier!  So glad I found LFARS and HamTestOnline.

I give them my highest recommendation possible for anyone else who is interested in HAM.  You'll meet role models right here who will make you glad you took the first step and it will make you want to give back to others with the same spirit that they shared with you.  Not a club, not a clique, instead the welcoming HAM FAMILY you perhaps didn't realize existed, just a click away.

Thank you!

CHARLES R WROTE . . .
The written instructions outlined the procedures clearly and I received good direction and support during the exam.  LFARS had superior availability for testing time slots to another remote test site I was considering and I felt the approach they had was friendlier and more supportive.

RUSSELL L WROTE . . .
This was a great experience.  Being able to take the exam while I knew the material and not have to wait for an in-person exam made a huge difference in being able to pass and get my license.  Thanks for doing this and helping me get my license.

EDWARD B WROTE . . .
All of the examiners were helpful.  There were a few glitches getting started with the process on exam day - probably due to my poor computer skills, but I have never seen online problems fixed as quickly as my examiners fixed them today.  They were great!  Thanks again guys.

TIJERINA H WROTE . . .
The process of getting my Amateur Extra license was an experience that I will remember for a long time.  Brandin, Chuck, Corey and Stephanie made it a comfortable and a pleasant experience.  My appreciation goes to the volunteer examiners at the Last Frontier Amateur Society for given me an opportunity to take the exam with them.  My sincerest Thanks.  Horacio (K5HTJ)

CESAR T WROTE . . .
The volunteer examiners are very friendly, clearly explained the exam procedures.  Gave us able time to setup the testing requirements and environment.  Everything went well smoothly and was greeted with very warm welcome that I passed the test.  Explained what lies along the future with path I had taken.

DANIEL P WROTE . . .

DYLAN K WROTE . . .
I thought everything went great!  I had a ton of nerves prior to taking the exam and everyone was so very nice and laid back!  This put to rest any fear I had.  I am so happy that I chose to test with you all.  The whole experience was great and I will be using you all for the rest of my exams.  It really does drive home the fact that the Ham radio community is very welcoming and I’m excited to get on the air!  73

Happy to be licensed here, polite, cordial and straightforward group of gentlemen.

CHRISTOPHER P WROTE . . .
I was a little skeptical about taking my ham exam online with all the extra steps required versus testing in person.  I can confidently say to anyone pondering taking their ham exam remotely that it is an easy, convenient, and fast process around thirty minutes in total for my experience.

AUSTIN L WROTE . . .
You have a very well laid out site and I found myself using your practice exam page over an online HAM prep site I paid for.  Every instruction in your emails were clear and sent in plenty of time for me to read it and be ready for test day.  Took a lot of pressure off.  I also really loved the encouragement the VEs gave prior to the test.  It broke the ice and helped my anxiety.  I will definitely be using you for my next test!

April 2023

DON M WROTE . . .
The setup you guys have with two Zoom sessions and the exam in browser is very smooth and straightforward.  Thanks so much for your time and your enthusiasm.  You were all so welcoming and it felt like you were just as excited as I was about passing the test!
