If you are not an Amateur Radio Operator (Ham) and are interested in Skywarn operation, this is the opportunity to get your ham license to fully participate in reporting severe weather conditions. You can become an Amateur Radio operator--no matter what age, gender or physical ability.
The Amateur Radio Association of Bloomington and The Bloomington Communications Group are sponsoring a weekend technician class on February 17 - 19, 2006. This will be a Friday evening, Saturday, and Sunday class. Volunteer Examiners will hold a Federal Communications Commission license exam immediately following the class Sunday afternoon.
Now You're Talking will be the course book and can be purchased through the ARRL or Radio City (in Mounds View). The class will be at the Bloomington Civic Plaza, located just west of I-35W on 98th St. The charge for the class will be $40, which includes the VE exam fee and a one-year membership in the Amateur Radio Association of Bloomington.
