Coastal Amateur Radio Society to hold a General Class Amateur Radio License Class

From Jere Connan, KT4ZB; if you’re interested in taking the class, let me know I can put you in touch with Jere.

Hi all – CARS will be offering a General Class License class in the near future and we want to know who would like to attend.

The General Class license is the second of three US Amateur Radio licenses. To upgrade to General Class, you must already hold a Technician Class license (or have recently passed the Technician license exam). Upgrading to a General license–which conveys extensive HF privileges—only requires passing a written examination. Once you do, the entire range of operating modes and the majority of the amateur spectrum below 30 MHz become available to you.  This course will be built around the ARRL General License Manual and will include instruction and “hands on” activities for the following topics.

– Procedures and Practices
– Rules and Regulations
– Components and Circuits

– Radio Signals and Equipment

– Antennas and Transmission Lines

– Propagation

– Electrical and RF Safety

The cost of the class is FREE – the book costs $29.95 from the ARRL and we will get a discount if I order a group at one time.  This book includes the ARRL Exam Review CD-ROM (requires Microsoft Windows). Use it with your book to review the study material. Take randomly-generated practice exams using questions from the actual examination question pool.

If you are interested, please let us know.

See you at the CARS meeting, Monday, June 4 – Jere, KT4ZB
