From Cindi Barker:
Here’s a long-awaited opportunity for Beacon Hill, West Seattle and South Seattle community residents to become licensed ham radio operators! Most Seattle classes are held in Ballard. Classes will run for two consecutive Saturdays, September 23 and September 30, from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. both days at Jefferson Community Center, 3801 Beacon Ave S. A group of highly qualified local instructors from the National Association for Amateur Radio will provide training. There is a $15 licensing fee. Modern ham radio is easy to learn. More than 90% of class participants are able to pass the exam and obtain their licenses. Devices are now more simple and affordable than ever before. Plan on bringing a lunch or visiting one of our nearby eateries. During the first class, participants will be given lots of information on available radios so they can make purchasing decisions and obtain their devices if necessary for the second class. PLEASE RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org BY TUESDAY, SEPT. 19, IF YOU CAN ATTEND. Registration isn’t required, but due to space considerations we need a headcount.
Cindi adds that if that class fills up, “here’s a link to a website that is pretty comprehensive about Western Washington radio classes. I hope something else will work you for you guys. http://www.n7cfo.com/amradio/hf/cls&ve.htm“.
