The entry level license for operating Amateur Radio in the United states is called Technician. The intermediate level license which earns more transmitting privileges is called the General. The top level license is called Amateur Extra. We have scheduled the first two level classes and are now accepting students to sign up. Classes are held at our Davidsonville, Maryland clubhouse and run 6 weeks in 3 hour sessions on Saturday mornings from 9AM until Noon. The class itself is FREE. You can buy the book on-line or at the first class but it is helpful to read the first chapter in advance.
A corporate sponsor (LDG Electronics) has agreed to provide a free handheld radio (subject to availability) to each student who attends the Technician classes and passes the license exam.
Please email KK4GV at W3VPR dot ORG with your Name, Address, Phone Number and any questions you may have. Click Read More for the schedule.
By popular demand, we are resuming the Radio Brunch on Saturday, 26 January, 2012. The location is the same, the Old Country Buffet in Annapolis, and the time is 9:00. You pay for the buffet as you enter, and the cost for seniors is $5.49, and drinks are extra at $1.99. I believe that the non-senior rate is $5.99, and there are generous reductions for youngsters. Plan to come and bring the family to enjoy a great meal with lots of your radio friends. See you there! --Chuck K3ACT
