Venture Crew 47 and the North Shore Radio Association have announced a License In A Weekend event in April. The class will be held on a Saturday and a Sunday and “will instruct applicants on topics they will need to know for their Technician Class license.” A special VE session will be conducted for students at the conclusion.
The class will be open to any scouting-related groups or friends and family of NSRA members. More information will come in the next few weeks; check the Crew’s website at http://crew47.nsradio.org/ for the most up-to-date information.
