For our text, we will be using “The ARRL Ham Radio License Manual”, Third Edition, It’s available from the ARRL store at their web site, www.arrl.org for $29.95 + shipping (conventional binding) or $32.95 + shipping (spiral,lie-flat binding) as an individual order shipped to your home. We can also make a bulk order through the club at a discount price of $23 (conventional binding) or $25 (spiral binding), but they would be shipped to our training coordinator and would be distributed at the next class — probably not until the 19 Aug session. If you utilize Kindle from Amazon you can also purchase the book on the Kindle store for $19.95.
We apologize for the short notice, but we are trying to provide the training prior to the Labor Day holiday to match up with some testing schedules.
