General Licenses Classes through Hoodview Amateur Radio Club
Hoodview Amateur Radio Club provides structured classes so that it becomes easy for you to pass your General class exam. We have had great success in helping students with the Technician material and now we are starting a General class. General classes will start on May 6 and will continue on May 13, with testing on May 18 at Mt. Hood Community College’s Fisheries building. Classes are from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. We will have a VE session on the last day at 9:00 AM. Classes are free, but the book is $22 and the VE test is $15. Textbook: “Ham Radio School” by Stu Turner (available online; be sure to get the General book). A limited number of books are available from Cory. Call 503-781-9095 to get your book prior to class. To register, call or email Cory (ka7iug [at] frontier [dot] com).
