Amateur Radio Technician and General Classes and Exam: January 25 - 26, 2019
Amateur Radio Operators from the Portland Neighborhood Emergency Team (NET) will be conducting Amateur Radio Technician and General Classes and a License Exam on Friday and Saturday, January 25 - 26. The classes and exam are open to the public. I will be one of the instructors for the General Class, and will assist with the ARRL exam session.
The classes will be conducted concurrently on Friday evening, January 25, from 6 - 9 PM, continuing on Saturday, January 26, from 8 AM - 2 PM. There is no charge for the classes. The exam will take place on Saturday afternoon, beginning at 3 PM. There is a $15 fee to take the exam. The classes and exam will take place at the Portland Community College, Cascade Campus, 909 N Killingsworth Street, Portland, Oregon 97217, in the Public Service Education Building, Rooms #100 and #103 (next door to the fire station). If you click on the link above, you will see a map that shows that this building is actually on the SE corner of North Jessup Street and North Michigan Avenue.
In order to derive the maximum benefit from the classes, it is recommended that you study or at least peruse the material prior to the class. https://hamstudy.org is a good place to start. You can review the material online for free, or you can purchase their app (for Apple or Android) for a nominal price. If you prefer a printed text, we recommend the Gordon West Technician Class or General Class study manual:
