Upcoming Technican Ham License Class
« on: June 05, 2019, 08:54:27 PM »
There will be a one day Technician FastClass at the NVCON Convention on July 19,20, & 21.  The Tech class will be held on Saturday, 7/20.  Preregistration is required!  Check in is at 7:30 a.m., the class will start at  8:00, run until about 3:30, and then test. 

David KD7YIM says "I've done about 25 of these classes and have about a 95% pass rate as long as people read the Gordon West book ahead of time" but adds that the pass rate is much lower if they don't read the book!

For complete info and to sign up, go to NVCON.org.  The class is $40 and there's an additional $15 test fee.  The Gordon West book is about $26; ordering info is on the website.

I'm in Texas (Austin) and am starting to look for a local group.

Most folks are happy being a part of the Great Shepherds Flock.
Some folks choose to be wolves and prey on the flock.
Some folks choose to defend the flock and confront the wolf.
