Fall 2014 Tech Class
Seneca County ARES will be offering an introductory Technician License class this fall. Classes will run on Wednesday evenings beginning September 10th, and end with the License Exam on November 12th. Classes normally run from 6:00 PM till 8:30 or 9:00 PM. We use the Gordon West materials for the class, available from W5YI.com and other sources. IMPORTANT INFORMATION: The Question Pool will be changing July 1, 2014, so please wait till the new question pool is published and the new manuals are available before purchasing. We typically use the West materials in class, including a PowerPoint presentation (which matches the manual) as our lecture basis. We will provide “color commentary” with the slide show, hands-on experience and demonstrations, and discussions with a number of local hams with extensive experience in various aspects of Amateur Radio. Although there is no charge for the instruction, students are expected to provide their own study guides, and there is a nominal fee required for the licensing exam at the end. W5YI does offer other training materials as well. These can enhance your learning but are not required. If you are interested, please fill out this form. Registration Form. We look forward to seeing you this September, and feel free to stop and see us in the Public Saftey Building during the Seneca County Fair, as well!
