GOSHEN — The Orange County Amateur Radio Club (OCARC) is announcing “Tech License 2020,” an 8-week self-study program followed by a 2-day intense review, and FCC exam on the second day.
The end-of-year break and cold winter days could be the perfect time for you (or a family member and you) to prepare and begin the new year as a licensed ham radio operator. The entry-level “Technician License” gives all privileges for the VHF/UHF frequencies, the first major step in radio communications and emergency preparedness. You will learn on-air operations, repeaters, radio wave propagation, even satellite communication. The exam is 35 multiple-choice questions, administered by certified volunteer examiners. There is only a $15 administrative fee for the exam, and no age limitation. The QA license manual by Gordon West is a proven study textbook, containing the entire FCC question pool with clear and thorough explanations, ideal for self-study. Experts from OCARC are only a phone call away, if you have questions during your self-study.
Register now for “Tech License 2020” by calling 391-3620, to receive instructions, and to reserve a seat for the 2-day review taking place at the Orange County Emergency Communications Center (ECC) in Goshen, on Feb. 22, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., and Feb. 23, 9 a.m. – noon, with exam Sunday at 1 p.m. When you register, you will get information for ordering the Gordon West Tech License manual, and directions to the classroom location at the ECC.
