The K6BTV West End amateur radio group will be offering amateur radio license courses beginning January 8 at American Legion Post 30 in Pomona.
Amateur radio operators must be licensed by the Federal Communications Commission. The six-week course will conclude on February 19 with testing for the Technician Class License, according to a press release from amateur radio group K6BTV West End.
The class will meet from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Wednesdays. Participants must purchase their own course book and read the first two chapters before the first lesson. The book is the “American Radio Relay League (ARRL) Amateur Radio License Handbook for the Technician Class”.
Each student will be charged $20 for the first lesson, which includes test fees and incidental fees.
Licensed amateur radio operators, also known as amateur radio operators, can communicate with others even when there is no electricity or cell service. The technician class license is the entry-level license for amateur radio operators. The course concludes with a 35-question test on radio theory, regulations and operating practices. A technician-class license allows an amateur radio operator to communicate locally and, most often, in North America, according to the press release.
American Legion Post 30 is located at 239 E. Holt Ave.
