The Aeronautical Center Amateur Radio Club, W5PAA, will be providing a weekend Technician class course that will run April 7th, 14th, 21st, and 28th, with an exam to be given on April the 28th.
These four Saturday courses will begin at 8 AM and run until 4 PM, with a one hour break for lunch. The course will be sited at the Oklahoma City Fire Training Academy, at 800 N. Portland, with parking in the east parking lot.
The course text will be the ARRL's "Ham Radio Licensing Course", second edition. If you have a book already, you are set to go. If not, email the instructor, so you will have a book at the first meeting. The cost of the book is $30.00 which includes a practice exam CD and all the pool questions. You do not have to have the CD, however, to study. The only other thing you will need to pay for will be the FCC exam itself, which is $15.00, payable at the April 28th final session.
This format was used one year ago in a trial run, and found to be very successful in training both technical and non-technical folks.
