The Orange County Amateur Radio Club (OCARC) is announcing “Tech License 2020,” an 8-week self-study program followed by a 2-day intense review, and FCC exam on the second day.
The end-of-year break and cold winter days could be the perfect time for you (or a family member and you) to prepare and begin the new year as a licensed ham radio operator! The entry-level “Technician License” gives all privileges for the VHF/UHF frequencies, the first major step inradio communications and emergency preparedness. You will learn on-air operations, repeaters, radio wave propagation, even satellite communication. The exam is 35 multiple-choice questions, administered by certified volunteer examiners. There is only a $15 administrative fee for the exam, and no age limitation! The Q&A (question/answer) license manual by Gordon West is a proven study textbook, containing the entire FCC question pool with clear and thorough explanations, ideal for self-study. Experts from OCARC are only a phone call away, if you have questions during your self-study.
