The Sturdy Memorial Hospital Amateur Radio Club plans to offer a two-day Technician class targeted specifically at CERT members and Emergency Management Agency personnel, according to SMHARC President John Benson, N1FLO.
“The training classes will be held on two Saturdays–January 7 and February 11, 2006. The idea is to present the book, the program, and rough ideas on the first day. One month later, [we’ll] do a question and answer session, a recap, and then hit them with the test.”
Says N1FLO: “We want to boost our ranks with good operators and also, get ham radio out into the community.”
SMHARC members KB5TBB and N1EZT have offered their services to teach the class. “We could still use a few more volunteers,” adds Benson.
