License Upgrade Class

We have partnered with Greer Parks and Recreation, and have approval to use their classroom at the Victor Park facility to teach Amateur Radio classes.  We will start with an Upgrade Class (to General) but anticipate offering all levels of instruction in the future.

Instructors will be Gary, W4EEY and Bill, N4IQ.

We will be using the ARRL General Class License Manual, Eighth Edition, which will be available for purchase at $25.  There are no other fees for the class.

I’ve attached a flyer in Word format.  The info in the flyer is below:
