Amateur Radio Technician License Class 2021

Free Training – The only cost is materials & test fee.

Presented by Seneca Radio Club W8ID

Location Buffalo Wild Wings 100 S Shaffer Park Dr. Tiffin Ohio

Starting January 20, 2021 from 6:00pm to 8:30pm

The class will be 10 weeks, meeting one night each week.

Seneca Radio Club will be offering an introductory Technician License class this January. Classes will run on Wednesday evenings beginning January 20th, and end with the License Exam on March, 24th. Classes normally run from 6:00 PM till 08:30 or 9:00 PM.

 We use the ARRL materials for the class, available from ARRL.org and other sources. The ARRL materials we typically use in class including a PowerPoint presentation (which matches the manual) as our lecture basis. We will provide “color commentary” with the slide show, hands-on experience and demonstrations, and discussions with a number of local hams with extensive experience in various aspects of Amateur Radio.

Although there is no charge for the instruction, students are expected to provide their own study guides, and there is a nominal fee required for the licensing exam at the end. The ARRL does offer other training materials as well. These can enhance your learning but are not required. If you are interested, please Email Dan AC8NP at AC8NP@AC8NP.COM We look forward to seeing you this January

All of us are excited about the opportunity to present another class in Seneca County and our response to the initial class was just super. There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy Amateur Radio, from contesting to using our local repeaters, HF DX’ing, digital and data modes, amateur television and of course Morse code or CW as we call it. Amateur Radio works when all else fails. 

Hams are all about helping each other and we’d love to have you with us in January.  More information is available on the Seneca Radio Club Website http://w8id.org

Course books will be about $30.00 and the FCC test is $15.00 Contact Dan AC8NP at AC8NP@AC8NP.COM for more information. Register online at http://w8id.org/technician-class-2021-registration-link/
