We have only 6 registrants for the ham radio course and qualifying exam.  Sign up now!  Remember, passing this exam will allow you to operate portable hand-held radio equipment with operating ranges over 100 miles in many cases!  For safety, these portable radios provide unmatched communication ability in virtually all regions of our state.  In addition, people who pass the qualifying exam will be able to operate base station equipment with around-the-world range!  The course will be offered FREE to all Maplewood rock and Gem Club members.  Federal Communication Commission examiners will come to us and administer the exam immediately following the course.  Exam papers will be graded on site, so you'll know immediately if you pass! The fee to sit for the exam is $15, the usual administrative fee for Federal Qualifying Examinations.  Once qualified, the operating license is valid for the rest of your life, with NO FEEs!   For our club, this is an amazing opportunity that may never happen again...don't pass it up!  Sign up using our Field Trip Sign up Form, and in place of "Trip", enter "Ham radio".
