Another bunch of new hams
Well we just finished another Tech class this Saturday. We had 38 signed up for the class and 13 showed up. Of the 13 that tested 12 passed and one lady went on and passed the General. I was a little concerned about how many would pass the test because the snow storm interrupted the schedule and that meant they were pretty much on their own to study. My family DR was in the bunch, she only missed one question. Her husband works for a hospital in Griffin GA and is developing emergency procedures for the hospital and for every possible event and he told her about the radios in the hospitals so she became very interested in it. I told her I was a volunteer radio operator (ARES) for a hospital in Carrollton GA. I then told her about the class and that got her there.
We start a class for the General license right after the 1st of the year and should have a pretty large group for that. We are planning to have a class for Extra sometime next year but that will be more than the usual 3 sessions.
AND, I see Wade got his license renewal on the 12th of December, good for another 10 years now, and he did it for free, how about that.
