Amateur radio general license course
Nassau County ARES is conducting a 13-week general license course beginning Tuesday, Jan. 26, 7-9:30 p.m. The General Class License Exam will be given on the last night of the course, which is intended for ham radio operators who have an existing Technician Class license, but this is not a requirement. Those who have no taken the Technician exam may take it the same day as the General exam; amateur radio operators must complete the Technician (Element 2) exam prior to taking the General (Element 3) exam. There is no charge for the course. The textbook and General exam software cost about $40 and are available from the instructor or online at w5yi.com; there will also be a $15 charge for taking the exam the last day of the course.
