The Schaumburg Amateur Radio Club (SARC) is sponsoring a series of 10 classes to help prepare people wanting to take the FCC Technician Class License test.
The classes will begin Saturday September 10, 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM at the Hoffman estates Branch of the Schaumburg Township District Library, 1550 Hassell Road in Hoffman Estates, and continue until Saturday November 12, 2022.
There is no charge for the classes. Registration is through the Library web site. Attendees are encouraged to obtain a copy of the ARRL publication “ARRL Ham Radio License Manual 5th Edition“, which is used as study guide and reference manual. It’s available at arrl.org and other sites.
At the conclusion of the classes attendees are invited to take their license exam through SARC during one of our regularly scheduled testing dates. The testing schedule and registration information is available here.
SARC’s Field Day was back to a full-scale, in-person operation this year. Operating three stations: SSB, CW and GOTA we kept the QSOs coming. Below is the preliminary score calculation submitted to the ARRL.
