Ham Radio Licensing Class Ham Radio Licensing Class will meet on Thursday evenings, beginning February 22. Class will run for 6-7 weeks. It will meet at the Baptist Center (across the street from Benchmark) 350 Congress Pkwy N in Athens 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. There is no fee to take the class. It is provided as a service to the community by myself and members of the McMinn County Amateur Radio Club. There is a study book by Gordon West that goes with the material. There are other study guides available. None of them are required. There is a lot of information online as well. The book is $22 from me, if you want one. Please let me know soon if you do. We will schedule a test session for the final evening of the class. The testing fee is $10 when you pass. This class is open to anyone, of any age who would like to learn more and become an Amateur Radio Operator. Please pass the information on to anyone that might be interested.

If you have any questions, please email me at kt4dw@comcast.net or you can call me at 506-2235. Mike Farmer, Lead Instructor KT4DW
