The examinees came from different municipalities/cities in Cagayan: Aparri, Sanchez Mira, and Tuguegarao City. With the authorization of the NTC-Central Office, the particular examination took place on the morning of June 18, 2022.

In March, many aspiring amateur radio operators got behind schedule in the yearly Regular Amateur Radio Operator Examination. The Amateur Group petitioned for a special examination, and the Commission granted the request, which was scheduled last June. The Radio Operator Examination Committee (ROEC) of the Central Office spearheaded the event with the supervision of Ms. Karen M. Fabella and Mr. David M. Zaldua and the facilitation of NTC- Region 2. The results will be released three (3) weeks after the examination. Successful examinees will obtain Amateur Radio Operator Certificate from the Commission with class conditions depending on the result.
