Default HAM Radio Technician class?

My wife and 10 year old daughter would like to get licensed and I have not had any luck in finding a class at any of the radio clubs locally. Is the club interested in doing another class as we did last year? I would be happy to assist.

Discuss...

Wow, excellent timing. The participation and results from last years class were fantastic. Each year we have made adjustments and improvements to the program. There is quite a bit of material to cover, so we are looking to spread go to 4 nights. We also would like to get Rising Sun participation on the Volunteer Examination Team (VE Team) that administers the exam. So, here are some particulars for all to consider.

This will be the third HAM Radio class for the members of Rising Sun. It is primarily geared toward getting the technicians license, focusing on passing the technician written exam, and good/safe operating practices.

This class is open to anyone interested. We will cover several things that will just be to pass the test, like how the FCC regulates the Amateur Radio section, propogation, electrical theory, etc. We will spend most of our time working on good operating practice, familiarizing ourselves with the radios and antennas, callsigns, station safety and the like. As with years past the class content will only be limited on how far we want to push it.

So to let the holidays slow down, and folks get back into the swing of things, this class will be scheduled for February 2008. This time around the class will be 4, two-hour classes. They will be on Mondays, starting Feb 9th. Classes start at 7pm and will be done by 9pm.

Please post up if you or someone you know is interested in joining us!

Short answer is yes. I'll get a seperate post up in the Ham Radio Section with some more details on what is needed. For those that are over achievers and want to know more now - everything you need to know is here.

Outstanding guys! It would be an nice thing to invite our bruthas and sistas from CLC and Horsetooth to the class too, in my opinion.
