February 2017 Technician Class Licensing Course

The Hurst Amateur Radio Club will be offering a free FCC licensing class during the 2nd and 3rd weeks of February 2017. If you are looking to get started with amateur radio, this is a great way to do it.

This instructor-led class will take place on Tuesday and Thursday from 6:30pm to 9:30pm during both weeks . An optional licensing test session will be offered during the last class and will cost $15 payable to the VEC.

The recommended study manual is the Gordon West 2014-2018 Technician Class Book available from a number of online and local booksellers or directly from W5YI (purchase online, but available for pickup locally). Please purchase ASAP for use with the Please purchase ASAP for use with the pre-class study worksheet (follow link to print). We ask that you come to the first day of class with the worksheet completed so we know what material to emphasize.
