Amateur Radio License Class

 

CCARC will hold an amateur radio license class in Washougal to help students earn an amateur radio technician license.  Class sessions will meet on Apr 9 (7-9 PM), April 10 (9 AM – 1 PM), April 16 (7-9 PM), and Apr 17 (9 AM – about 1 PM).  The test will be offered on the 17th.  Class space is limited and pre-registration required.  To enroll, send an email to the instructor at ns7u@arrl.net; the instructor will confirm if space is available. 

 

There is no tuition for the course, recommended but optional study manual, $27 and license test fee $15.  Class location will be sent to enrolled students due to space constraints.

 


 

Amateur Radio License Tests

 

 

 

The next scheduled license testing sessions with openings is at 2pm on Sunday April 11th and at 2pm Sunday May 9th 2021 at the Salmon Creek American Legion, 14011 NE 20th Ave, Vancouver, WA 98686. For more information CLICK HERE.

 


 

COVID-19 and the CCARC

The Board of the CCARC has been monitoring the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation as it has developed along with recommendations as they are issued or revised.  The latest advisory guidance is to wear a mask, wash hands thoroughly and use the 6 foot separation rule.

In light of this guidance, the Board has decided during thIs period to shift our general meeting to an online forum. We will still have our regular meeting, now online only, login starting at 6:50 pm, meeting starting at 7 pm. To see the videos of past Friday General Meetings that were recorded, click HERE. It will take you to a YouTube playlist of available recordings. You can bookmark the link in your browser for easy future access.

On a lighter note, now would really be a great time to invest in those Push to Talk (PTT) radio skills and dedicate some time to ensure your ham shack and equipment are in working order!
