Calling all Technician Licensed Hams

  • Are you a licensed Amateur Radio operator with a Technician Class license?
  • Have you thought about upgrading to General but just haven't gotten around to it or think it is too hard to do?
  • Do you really want to learn the details and not just take a Ham-Cram class?
  • Do you dream of being able to operate on those wonderful HF bands available only to higher class licensees?
If this describes you, then now is your chance to join a study group in a friendly and helpful atmosphere over a period of a few weeks which will give you a chance learn about Amateur Radio and the technical "stuff" necessary to upgrade to the General Class license level.

Sierra Intermountain Emergency Radio Association is taking calls from interested persons for the purpose of gathering enough people for an Amateur Radio General License Class.

This class would be held for two hours an evening, for eight weeks.

Location and dates for this class to be determined upon interest shown.

If you are interested in upgrading your Technicians License, please call Billie Jo McAfee at 530-577-8434 (please leave your name & number).
NOTE: Each student will have to provide their own copy of the current ARRL General Class License Manual. This manual is available through the ARRL website.

A new Question Pool was released for all General Class exams held beginning July 1, 2015 so you will need to purchase the new edition of the General Class License Manual. Class materials will be based on this new edition.
