Saturday Technician Class

The Aeronautical Center Amateur Radio Club (ACARC) will be offering amateur radio licensing classes on three upcoming Saturdays in April, followed by amateur Radio Licensing exams on the first Saturday in May. Bring a sack lunch if you wish or there are several fast food restaurants you can visit within a short distance. I'll have a list of those for you at the first meeting. These classes will be for the Technician class license which is the entry-level license that conveys all privileges on VHF and UHF frequencies, plus limited HF frequency and power privileges. These classes will be held during the three April Saturdays (April 5thApril 12th, and April 26th) from 8 AM to 4 PM with a one hour break at 11:30 for lunch. The fourth Saturday (May 3rd) will be a review at 10 AM (optional) followed by the exam at noon. The location of the classes and exam will be the Oklahoma City Fire Training Center, at 800 N. Portland. The building we are in is to the east, so you may park in the east parking lot, and go in either of the two east doors. The classroom we are in will be posted at the outside doors so you can't miss it.

 We do not charge for the classes, but do require that a book be either purchased or shared. You can order a book from the amateur radio national organization, the American Radio Relay League, (ARRL) at the following website. I can also pick up one for you from the FAA bookstore if you let me know a week in advance (limited quantities). The cost of these books will be 30.00. The ARRL Website to order books:

 This class typically is offered in the spring and fall of each year. It is available on-line as well. If you have any further questions, need directions, or otherwise, you can call me at the phone numbers below, or reach me at my email address.
