Club Meeting

Don’t forget, tonight is club meeting night!

 

If you are a General class or higher and are interested in becoming a Volunteer Examiner (VE) with ARRL be sure to come to this meeting.  You will need to bring a copy of your current FCC license.

 

I will have the ARRL-VE manual and plenty of blank applications and open book reviews available at the meeting for all interested to fill out.

 

If you are currently accredited with W5YI, bring a copy of your accreditation with them for ‘Instant Accreditation’ with ARRL (you wont have to do the open book review)
