We are looking for 15-30 Technicians that want to upgrade to General after the January Technician classes ends. We are looking at a February and or March start date. We will use the ARRL General Class License Manual. We would use the Jester Annex in Round Rock unless it makes sence to move closer to where the students are coming from.
If you would like a General class let us know and let us know. Please include your call sign so we can figure out where the students are coming from. We are not locked into the Jester Annex. We have access to other facilites in the Austin / Round Rock area.
Let us know if you would prefer a 4 hour Saturday class or would you prefer 2 4 hour classes back to back with an hour lunch break.
The Entry Level into Amateur Radio is the Technican Class license...
