Technician Licensing Class – March 2018

The time has come again for us to hold our Technician licensing class for those interested in taking the steps to become an Amateur Radio operator. This class is open to all that are interested.

If you are interested, please visit our signup page here. This gives your instructors the information needed to get you started in this great hobby. The information you need to know can be found below:

  • Where: Hurst Fire Station #2, 837 W. Pipeline Road, Hurst Texas 76053. We will be upstairs, in a secured area, so you will need to use the doorbell and someone will come to escort you up.
  • When: March 20th, 22nd, 27th, and 29th, 6:30pm – 9:30pm.
  • Cost: The cost of the class is FREE. There is an expense for the book ($20-$25), plus a $14 VEC exam session fee that does apply.
  • Materials: You will need the following book from W5YI, Amazon, or any other retailer. The price ranges from $20-$25 most places:¬†http://www.w5yi.org/catalog_details.php?pid=76

We hope to see you there. This is a fun and interactive class that covers all of the theory. It is designed to help you with visualizing the why’s and how’s of ham radio. This class is a supplement to the book, requires that you still study the book. If you do you part in studying, we will do ours in making sure you are ready to pass the Technician level test.

For proper resource allocation and seating arrangements, we will have to limit the class to only those that have registered. We will not be able to accept walk ins, so do not forget to register.
