Monday, Jan. 8, 6:30 p.m.—NORTH CLARENDON— Starting Jan. 8 the Green Mountain Wireless Society, Rutland County’s amateur radio club, will offer introductory licensing classes. The 11 weekly Monday sessions are open to any interested citizen.
Classes will be held at the Civil Air Patrol Building – Rutland Southern Vermont Regional Airport, Airport Road, in North Clarendon.
Class time is 6:30-8:30 p.m. At the end of the class, students will be ready to take and pass the Technician Class amateur radio license exam. You do not need to learn Morse Code to get a license.
Terrific for students, the class is a good way to learn about electricity, electronics, physics, earth science and other STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) subjects. It also leads to a fun hobby as you can talk to the world via amateur radio or talk to your ham friends locally via 2-way home or mobile radio.
