Our latest Technician Class started Saturday, March 3rd. We had 24 students preregiestered. Of those 20 arrived for the first class, along with 7 people who didn't preregister. Good thing I made extra handouts.. The next week more arrived.
We usually lose a few students early in each class for whatever reason, and this spring was no exception as we have apparently lost 7 so far. Plus we lost 3 more students the good way, when they passed their Technician License Exams early and joined the AARC. So we have 24 students remaining 4 classes into this 6 week course and it looks like the majority will finish and take their Tecnnician Exams.
We could easily have more than 25 new hams by the April 18th meeting, when I hope we can vote a bunch of these folks into our club.
