    Upcoming Ham Radio Class

    Upcoming! One Day Amateur Radio License class.

    Technician FastClass in Sparks, tentative date August 5, 2017.

    Almost everybody passed the class held at Rounds Bakery last year but you have to read the book! Pick up a copy of Gordon West's The Technician Study Manual (July 1, 2014 June 30, 2018) available from http://www.w5yi.org for $20.95 plus shipping. They ship fast!

    This is your chance to finally get your Ham Ticket!

    Class will be held at Prep and Save in Sparks.

    Final details will follow in a week or so.

    I have a friend that isn't sure if he's working or not on that date yet. Could he possibly just take the test if he finally studies his book at home before the test date?

    Yes, testing will be available after the class, about 3:30 or so, depends a little on when we finish up + we'll probably have testing for all license classes, not just the Tech. No classes for General or Extra though. Note that testing also happens every other month in Reno, most Mondays, and Carson on the alternate months so the testing is the easiest part. The hardest part is getting people to actually prepare!

    Having an amateur radio in your rig is one of the more valuable tools you can carry. It works when all else fails to get help. David's class is top shelf and if you read the prep material ahead of time, its an easy pass. His last class saw a 12 y/o kid pass, so if he can do it, so can you.
