Expand Your Knowledge on Saturday Mornings

The Hurst Amateur Radio Club will begin offering a new time from 8 am to 9 am on Saturday mornings for those hams that want to continue to expand their knowledge on different topics. This is in addition to the 9 am to noon GROUP time that we’ve had for years for projects and mentoring. Come for the knowledge, stay for the practical!
Beginning April 5th, 2014, we will offer a bi-weekly Extra Class Study group for anyone wanting to refresh or test for Extra. This isn’t an instructor-led licensing class, just an opportunity to get together with others studying for their Extra class license. There will also be knowledgeable Extras on hand to share their experiences.
Beginning April 12th, 2014 we will offer a bi-weekly Morse Code class. if you’re ever wanted to learn or you want to get back up to speed on code, this is the one to come to.
The study topics are subject to change based on interest and attendance. Visit our Meetup event calendar for more information and to let us know you’re coming!
