OUR CURRENT CLASS: SEPTEMBER-OCTOBER 2017: This class is for the Technician License. It runs on successive Thursday evenings beginning September 7, 2017, from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The class culminates in the FCC test on November 2 (see below). Cost of the class: $30. Recommended reference book: ARRL Technicial Class Manual, available either from the instructor for $30 or from Ham Radio Outlet in Burbank for about $32.

This is the class you want for learning about ham radio. Students who take this class come away with real knowledge and have a good rate of passing the FCC exam, as well as learning how to use their radios.

FCC TEST, NOVEMBER 2, 6:30 P.M. Administered by volunteer examiners (VEs). This test is open to all levels, not just the Technician level. Fee for the FCC test: $15
