Amateur Radio operators and friends

ASC is thrilled to be able to host a Ham in a Day class on January 21st in the Rifle/Pistol building. If you are interested in becoming a HAM, this is the easiest way to get it done! Study and test in one day for only $20. More and more ASC members are getting hooked on the amateur radio hobby, join us and get your license in January!

The session will consist of a study portion, then the test in the afternoon. If you pass, your results will be reported to the FCC and you will receive your callsign shortly thereafter. If you are looking to get licensed, this is a great way to go! If you are already a Tech, this is a great way to upgrade. And if you are a General, you can take the test to upgrade to Extra. Note that there is no study class for the Extra upgrade, but this is a convenient way to get that Extra upgrade.

The registration link is below:
