Amateur Radio License Classes in 2014


License classes have been scheduled for 2014.


The Clark County Amateur Radio Club is sponsoring an Amateur Extra class on 3 Saturdays in September (13th, 20th and 27th).  Class sessions will run from 9 AM to 3 PM each day.  The CCARC VE team will administer the test on the third Saturday (Sep 27) starting about 1 PM.  All class sessions will meet at the LDS church located at 7101 NE 166th Ave, Vancouver, WA 98682.  Instructors will be Delvin, N7QMT, Phil, AC7NB, and Steve, N7VHT.


Since this will be a rather intensive abbreviated course (some courses last 12 weeks), we strongly recommend that you enroll early and acquire a study guide so you can start studying before class.  Delvin, N7QMT, will order manuals soon and sell copies for $27.  To enroll, please send an email to and will we add you to the class roster.  We anticipate a large class, so please enroll early.
