Save This Date: HAM RADIO CLASS
The Plano Amateur Radio Club will be presenting a Technician level amateur radio class on May 19th and 20th, 2018. The class will be held at the Allen Central Fire Station training center, which is located at 310 Century Parkway, in Allen TX.. As always the class is free, the EXAM is $14.00 cash. We are looking at a timeframe of 8:00am- 5:00pm on Saturday and 8:00am- 3:00pm on Sunday, with the EXAM starting at 3:00 pm on Sunday. Limited parking should be available on the north side of the fire station. Additional parking is available across the street (Century Parkway), at the City of Allen municipal complex.
To prepare for this class, we urge you to pick up a copy of the Ham Radio School’s Technician Class study guide prior to the class, and read through the course material at least once. We have a number of these used study guides available, which we can provide you for free, because the exam material they cover will be expiring on June 30th of this year. If you prepare by reading through the study guide, and marking any items that you have questions about, and then pay attention and ask questions during the two day training class, there is an excellent probability that you will pass the exam with a high score. Other Technician License Study Guides are available locally at the Ham Radio Outlet store 701 E. Plano Parkway Suite 406, across the street from Fry’s Electronics in Plano.
A government issued photo ID will be required to take the exam on Sunday afternoon (FCC Requirement). Other amateur radio class exams (General,Extra) will also be available for those wishing to take those exams. For these advanced exams, you will need to bring a copy of your current amateur radio license.
To register for this class, or if you have additional questions, please send an email to Mike Pruden at (NN5ZZ@ARRL.NET). Please provide your NAME, EMAIL ADDRESS, and TELEPHONE NUMBER, so we can contact you with any questions.
Let us know if you are interested in one of our used study guides, and we will contact you regarding how to pick up your copy.
