Interested in Amateur Radio? Want to become a ham? Know someone who is interested? The Technician class license is the first of the FCC Amateur Radio licenses.

Our club just sponsored a weekend class - Sunday evening when the class finished everyone in the class passed their license exam.

Upcoming classes

Next class will be:

Ham Radio Intro – get your entry level “Technician” license in one weekend!

    March 15-17 at the main Vashon fire station conference room (north side of Bank Rd.)
    Instructor is Tammy Zoch, WA7TZ, a Ham guru from off-island
    Sign up with Jan Milligan:  cert@vashonbeprepared.org  or 206-949-1184
    $25 covers your ARRL test fee and her expenses to teach for us.  PAY IN ADVANCE. Checks payable to Tammy Zoch.  Please mail the checks to:  Jan Milligan, PO Box 13238, Burton 98013
    You do NOT need a radio for this class.  WAIT until after the course to decide on gear you may want.  The FCC does not allow you to talk on the air anyway, until you have the license.
    Buy your own textbook and read as much as you can before the course. 
    Order it directly from the The American Radio Relay League (ARRL) 
    http://www.arrl.org/shop/ARRL- Ham-Radio-License-Manual-4th- Edition-Softcover    Item No. 0871.  $29.95
    Attend all sessions and bring your lunch on Sat/Sun, and plenty of water to get you through the day
         Fri evening 1700 - 2100  (5 p.m. - 9 p.m.)
         Saturday 0900 - 1800  (9 a.m. to 6 p.m.)
         Sunday 0900 until mid-afternoon-ish, then take the test.  We should be done no later than 1800 
    The FCC will send your license (good for 10 years), and the Vashon Radio Club will be your perfect source for practice on-the-air and more training.  The radio club's website is www.w7vmi.org
