CARC is providing a class called GET RADIO-ACTIVE.  This class will cover everything you need to know about getting active in Amateur Radio.  Primarily for new Amateur Radio Operators, all Amateur Radio Operators can learn something from this class.  It will be this Saturday, Sep. 22, 12:30 PM at the ETV building after the VE testing.  Amateur Radio Operators thinking about being a Net Controller would benefit from this Class.  We even talk about programming your radio and three different linked repeater systems.
