Raven Hill will be hosting a technical training for anyone interested in obtaining their amateur radio technician license. Connect science and history as you learn the history of radio communications and how to use radios for disaster preparedness. Participate in world-wide communication and even become "audio" pen pals with people from all over the world. The 20 hour training will be held over 5 weeks. We will meet at Raven Hill on Thursdays from 5 - 9pm starting February 4th. Classes will be taught by John Clements, and a light dinner will be provided. At the conclusion of the class, you may opt to take the Technician License Test for $15. The required text is Gordon West Technician Class 2014 - 2018 and is available through your preferred book retailer or from Raven Hill for $20.
