01/12/2010 Licensing Classes Offered
If you or someone you know is interested in grabbing their "first ticket" or upgrading to their General license, the Alexandria Radio Club is offering classes beginning March 2, 2010. Classes will continue each Tuesday through May 4, until the test on May 4, 2010. Of course, as always, the test is set up to facilitate those who have just completed the classes, but is open to all would be examinees. The classes will be held in room HEC#3 of the Health Education Center at Inova Alexandria Hospital located at 4231 Seminary Road in Alexandria, right off 395. Each class will start at 7PM, ending around 9:15PM. The cost is $50, which includes the textbook, test fee and materials. You are not required to attend all (or any) of the classes to take the exam, so if you have to miss a class - no big deal... Walk-ins are welcome, but if you know you are going to come, please drop a line to Rich, KA4GFY, at (703) 960-4096 or email firstname.lastname@example.org so he can get an idea of the class size.
