Oct 13 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

Admiral Congregational Church is hosting a six-week intensive course on the history of “white” as a racial and political category in the United States.

Description: Ham radio is a great hobby and a great way to serve the community. One can communicate locally, around the world or even via satellite. It provides an excellent means of emergency communication. Your license never expires as long as you renew every 10 years (no need for another exam). We intend this to be a fun, low-key, learning experience. We encourage class participation and asking questions. However, we will not call on individual students during class so that you can feel free to participate at your comfort level. We will present the conceptual material during the first weekend so you can study efficiently during the following week. Practical scenarios and demonstrations will be presented on the next Saturday. You are not required to take the exam on the last day if you feel you need more time to study. Note that a General Class (level 2) course is being given immediately after this class. You may register for both and must do this online.

HamStudy.org is an excellent source for free ham radio flash cards, practice tests, and question pools.
