A few of you (and you know who you are) have been milking the good will of your fellow hams for well, far too long. Time to step up and pay your $14, and go legit with the technician's license.

There's a test tonight in Westminster. Man, how convenient for some of the north side front rangers...

Is there by chance a local class (Lone Tree area) that periodically occurs?

No classes, its a self study thing. You could buy the book, or there are a ton of websites available to study from. Here's the one I used. http://www.qrz.com/hamtest/

See my post in the June 1 test thread. It's probably a lot cheaper and easier to study on your own with free resources. 8 year olds have passed the Tech exam.
