Mark, K8MHZ, is planning on starting a Tech Class in February. I
have a list of 14 potential students at this time. Once Mark has
the dates (most likely Wednesdays), time and location confirmed he
will let me know. At that time I will begin the phone calling. If
you have names of interested folks send them to me and I will add
them to my list. I also read the post from Joe about the class in
Holland on Monday evenings. So, the opportunities are there.
Mark is planning on using the Gordon West book and the W5YI VEC
team. Book is around $15 and the class itself is FREE. Testing
will hopefully be done on the last night of class and that will be
the standard $14 test fee.
