    Ham Radio FastClass coming up in July

    KD7YIM will be holding a One Day Technician Amateur Radio FastClass at the Boomtown Hotel and Casino on Saturday, July 20. David says "If people read the book in advance, there's a 95% pass rate. We test right after the class so you don't have time to forget the answers." It's a 35 question test and all material is at a middle school level so think "7th and 8th grade." He uses the Gordon West book which he thinks is better than the more common ARRL material.

    This is part of the Nevada Section Conference a regional Ham radio event. There will be speakers, vendors, a hamswap, forums, and related events.

    For full information on the class, reading material, sample test info and the convention go to NVCON.org

    Dave has a proven formula to pass the test. Consistent results. His class rocks. Do it.

    Rarecj8, of course you'd say that since you've helped teach the class! See all you guys in class. General testing will also be available for CashMoney, Gordon West also has a General Class book! KD7YIM

    I had the book before the question change I think. I've just been so busy I haven't had time to do it. We'll see what happens though!
