We’re starting the Operating Classes again on March 30.
Free weekly 3-hour Zoom sessions providing info on a wide range of Amateur Radio Operating Activities will start on Thursday March 30, 2023 and run through June 15, 2023 at 6:30 PM Eastern time. Each session is independent, so you can attend all or just selected evenings. The presenters will be folks very experienced in the various subjects.
A detailed syllabus will be published before the classes begin. Attend them all, or any that you like, but you must register for the classes. To receive registration information, contact Rol Anders, K3RA, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
