Spring 2016 General Class


Ready to jump into HF ?

NOW is the time !

MAARC is offering a class to prepare you
for the FCC General Class Exam

It has been a long time since a class has been offered in the area for Technicians wanting to upgrade to General, and we are excited to get that started again.  If you are ready to meet the world on the air, we are ready to help you get there !  Don't wait any longer, don't put it off for later-- sign up for the upcoming Spring class and pick up your General ticket.

When:  Weekly on Wednesday evenings, 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm beginning March 9, 2016 and ending April 27th, 2016 (8 sessions total)

Where:  Community Room at the Maring-Hunt Branch of the Muncie Public Library (2005 S. High Street)

Cost:  The class is free, but you will need the ARRL General Class License Manual, 8th Ed.  If you have or obtain the book on your own, that's perfectly fine.  Amazon has them (including Kindle format) and so might some of your friends.  As long as it's the General Class 8th Edition, you're good to go.

If you need a book, contact us no later than Wednesday March 2, 2016 and we will have one waiting for you at the first class meeting.  Books cost $30.00, pay when you pick it up.

Also, there is an FCC admin/filing fee of $15.00 required to take the exam on April 27th.  You will pay the volunteer examiner team directly when you take the exam.

So... Free Class + $30 Book + $15 FCC Fee = $45.00.

How to Join:  Contact one of the instructors or the club.

Gary Lee, KB9ZUV - Instructor.
Jim McDonald, KB9LEI - Instructor.

MAARC: or give us a call at (765) 273-3101

Questions ?  Get in touch with the instructors or the club and ask away.  We are happy to help and look forward to a strong turnout.

FYI: We've got some extra help lined up to assist everyone who signs up for the course !

Email and Phone Support:
The instructors will be available between by telephone and email as their time allows, and we have lined up a few experienced club members who are happy to volunteer their time to do the same. If any of our students have questions or need some extra tutoring with the coursework, help is nearby.

Weekly Q&A Net:
The club will be starting an on-air Q&A net to help students prepare for the test. Yep, this will be fun ! We will host the net on one of the club's repeaters, more details and Net times will be provided during the first class meeting on March 9th.

We're getting excited about this class. If you're a Tech who is sitting on the fence thinking about it… Jump down and sign up today !
