Congratulations to those who attended the Ham Radio Classes at the Moose Family center in Chicopee MA. It was great to see a lot of people interested in either getting a license or upgrading to a general or extra.
Rich, N1KXR is in the middle of teaching a class
The classes seem to go okay. It’s pretty difficult to cover all the sub elements with the time that we have but everyone stuck around and put their best foot forward.
We now have
- 9 New Technicicans
- 9 New Generals
- 5 New Extras
Some of the new generals started off with no license at all and it’s great to see all the hard work pay off. There were some who didn’t pass what they wanted to get but it’s not the end of the world. You have the book, and there are a lot of places you can ask questions for the areas you’re having trouble with. If you stick with it, you’ll have your license or upgrader sooner than you think.
From a VE Standpoint, It was the Biggest VE exam I’ve taken part in. It started off real slow as the candidates we’re all testing but then a big surge of tests started coming in which made for a busy afternoon.
Overall it was great. I’ve learned a lot about how these classes go and If I have the chance to do it again, I most likely would.
Hope to hear all the licensees on the air
