Technician License Class Starting 8/12/17

The North Okaloosa Amateur Radio Club (NOARC) will offer classes on 12, 19, and 26 August (Saturday mornings) from 0830 to 1130 at the Crestview campus of the Northwest Florida State College.  (Just East of the intersection of 85 and 90.)

The syllabus will be:

12 August (this Saturday):

  • Intro to the course
  • Chap 1, Welcome to Amateur Radio
  • Chap 2  Radio and Signals Fundamentals
  • Chap 3  Electricity, Components, and Circuits

19 August:

  • Chap 4  Propagation Antennas, and Feed Lines
  • Chap 5  Amateur Radio Equipment

26 August

  • Chap 6 Communicating with Other Hams
  • Chap 7  Licensing Regulations
  • Chap 8  Operating Regulations
  • Chap 9  Safety

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.

Please contact Mike Behr, W4BZM via e-mail if you would like to attend this class.  Please let Mike know as well if you would like for him to order the material for you. behrcave@gmail.com
