NOARC recently held training sessions for the Technician license on August 12, 19, and 26. We had seven students who attended at least one class, including two ladies and three young men under the age of sixteen — not the normal makeup of a ham radio class! We welcome their interest! Three of the students passed the Technician test on 09 September and will soon have their call signs and be heard on the air. Please welcome Nancy Cummings, Doug Blanford, and Jackson Puls to the fold of radio amateurs. Hopefully, they will be at the NOARC meeting on 14 September. Please make it a point to introduce yourself to them.
Thanks are also due to the guest instructors for the Technician class: Arc W4CPD, Ron KI5FR, and Bruce KA5DLV. NOARC would not be able to present these classes without the assistance of these guest instructors.
