Ham Radio Classes – Coming Soon


The Hampden County Radio Association will be holding an Amateur Radio Technician Class along with General and Extra Study Groups at the Holyoke Hospital Auxiliary Conference Center (auditorium), 575 Beech Street, Holyoke, Mass. This classes and study groups are open to everyone of all ages and affiliations.

There will be three different meeting dates:
Class #1 – Monday, January 13, 2014 7:00 – 8:30 PM
Class #2 – Monday, January 20, 2014 7:00 – 8:30 PM
Class #3 – Saturday, January 25, 2014 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM

VE Exam – Saturday, January 25, 2014 at approximately 3:00 PM

Attendance is NOT taken. If you can’t make the Monday evening dates, just come on Saturday. These condensed meetings are presented with the assumption that individuals will study and take practice tests on their own outside of class time. Our goal is to provide experienced ham radio operators (elmers) to be used as resources when going over the questions and answers that may be on the test.

There is no charge for the class/study group, but the purchase of the ARRL License Manual ($29) is strongly suggested. Internet links to other resources will be provided. ARRL License Manuals can be ordered for delivery at the first class by contacting John, kx1x@arrl.net.
The cost to take the test is $15 per attempt.

The license, after passing the test, costs $0 and can be renewed for $0 every 10 years. Two forms of ID are required, including one picture identification.

Questions? Email John/Kx1x, kx1x@arrl.net
