Amateur Radio license courses coming up
I'm not directly involved, but happy to share this information on some upcoming, no-nonsense classes for getting your Technician license, or to upgrade to the General license. The Technician license allows you to use simple radio equipment and repeaters to communicate within about a 50-mile radius from just about anywhere. The General license lets you use more advanced equipment and methods to talk much further and without the need to rely on repeaters.
These multi-session courses are a very good way to actually learn the essentials rather than trying to just remember enough answers long enough to pass a test.
Please pass this along to anyone you know who might be interested and able to make the time commitment.
The Sacramento Sheriff Amateur Radio Project is offering no-cost license courses for the Technician and the General Class Amateur Radio Licenses at the LDS Church, 8580 Florin Rd, Sacramento, CA 95828. The course is offered as class sessions from 6-9 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays over 3 or 4 weeks, each of which covers one portion of the material with pre and post practice exams. A license exam session for a $15 fee is offered on the Friday following the final class of each course.
DATES FOR TECHNICIAN CLASSES: March 5th, 7th, 12th, 14th, 19th, 21st with the VE Session on the 22nd of March, 2019.
DATES FOR GENERAL CLASSES: April 2nd, 4th, 9th, 11th, 16th, 18th, 23rd, with the VE session on the 26th of April, 2019.
