CVARC 2021 Ham Radio License Course Dates Announced

In 2021 we are holding three courses of classes, one for each license level. All of the classes run from 8:00 A.M. to 12:00 Noon on Saturdays and are held in a Zoom meeting. There is a shorter orientation class one week before the start of the main course. Due to COVID-19, CVARC is not holding in-person license exams at this time, but information will be given during the classes about taking the exam online. As soon as we are able to use our normal location at the East County Sheriff’s Station, we will shift from Zoom to the classroom and resume in-person testing.

There is no fee for the course, but a book must be obtained by the student at least a week before the course begins. We are using the “ARRL Ham Radio License Manual” for the appropriate license for each course (Technician, General, Amateur Extra). These are available through the ARRL, Amazon, and other sources. Be sure to get the current editions.
