COVID-19 & Live Classes

COVID-19 has been an issue for several months. I want to provide classes but social distancing requirements and availability for the class schedule have prevented live classes being scheduled.

I am working on an online solution and hope to be able to offer Technician classes sometime in Winter 2020. This is currently a moving target.


I offer Technician Class License classes that are intended to help new hams get started in Amateur Radio with their first license. The class covers all of the basic knowledge needed to pass the license exam, and begin participating in the ham community.

This class is $30 per person

The Amateur Extra License is considerably more in-depth on electrical, electronic, and RF theory & practice. It is the pinnacle of Amateur Radio licensing and requires a well-developed program to meet the needs of an experienced amateur operator looking to upgrade their license.

I do not currently have an Amateur Extra class developed. This is something I will be working on in the future.

This class is currently in development.
