Course Preregistration

Before you make your course selection(s), you need to know there are three classes of amateur radio license that you can receive, Technician, General and Amateur Extra.  To receive a Technician license you must pass the FCC Element 2 exam.  To receive a General license you must pass Elements 2 and 3, and to become an Extra you must pass Elements 2, 3 and 4.  So it is best to start with a Technician class first, and work your way up.  Morse Code is rather an optional skill that will increase your ability to communicate.  But like learning a musical instrument it takes a lot of time an practice, but once learned is something you'll have for life.

Throughout 2020 we held all classes via Zoom for obvious reasons.  Though we have use of our club house at present, new variants to the COVID-19 virus continue to put that in jeopardy.  So everyone who plans to take our Fall 2021 course should be equipped and ready to participate using Zoom.  All classes are 1:15pm till 4:45pm and will be held on 6 consecutive Saturdays. 

At present it appears that we will be unable to use our club house for the in person version of this class.  This is because our club house is part of the Davidsonville Family Recreation Center, which by the governors mandate now requires all guests to wear masks at all times.

Though that could change, I suggest you plan to view all classes via Zoom.  If this changes we will email you notice of same.  The bottom line is that one way or possibly two ways, our classes will be available to you.    

Until further notice we plan to teach classes both in person in our club house, and simultaneously on Zoom. (This may be subject to change.)
