Ham Radio License Classes Beginning in February
  January 20th, 2018

The Greene County Amateur Radio License Courses, jointly sponsored by the three Greene County amateur radio clubs (Bellbrook, Fairborn and Xenia) and Greene County ARES, will be held concurrently on Sunday evenings from 7:00 to 9:00 PM beginning February 11th and continuing through April 15th.  There will be no class on April 1st (Easter Sunday).  A Greene County VE Test Session is scheduled for Sunday, April 22nd at 6:00 PM.

The entry level Technician Class Course will be held in the Training Center at the Bellbrook Amateur Radio Club Clubhouse, Room 1 Sugarcreek Elementary School, 51 South East Street in Bellbrook.  No prior experience is required and there is no minimum age required to earn a Technician Class license.  Morse Code no longer is required for any amateur radio license.

The General Class Course (and the Test Session) will be held in the Training Room at Beavercreek Township Fire Station 61 located at 2195 Dayton-Xenia Road (just west of Orchard Lane).

The Extra Class Course will be held in the Training Room at Fairborn Fire Station 2 located at 2200 Commerce Center Blvd just south of Dayton-Yellow Springs Rd (just east of I-675).

Detailed directions to the respective sites will be provided to students upon request.

There is no charge for the courses or for the test session but all students are encouraged to have a copy of the respective ARRL License Manual.  Please see note below about purchasing options for a license manual—now also available in Kindle e-book format for computers and mobile devices.

Please pass this information along to anyone you know who may be interested in earning an amateur radio license or upgrading.  All current Technician Class hams are encouraged to consider upgrading to General Class and the Greene County General Class Course provides an ideal opportunity.

To register for one of the courses or for more information, please contact Henry Ruminski W8HJR by email at Henry.Ruminski@wright.edu or by phone (between 10:00 AM and 9:00 PM) at (937) 232-9272 (leave message if no answer).
