AMATEUR RADIO CLASSES BEGINNING IN THE FALL TO BE HELD AT SDSM& T
Once again the Black Hills Amateur Radio Club and the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology ( SDSM& T) Amateur Radio Club will be giving Amateur Radio classes this fall at SDSM& T. Instructors Frank Shaw and Neal Hodges II, Senior Systems Programmer at Tech, will primarily teach for the No- Code Technician Class Amateur Radio License. Assistance to those who wish to work toward other license classes including, Novice, General, Advanced and Extra, will also be available.
“ We teach the FCC ( Federal Communications Commission) rules and regulations as applied to Amateur Radio,” said Hodges. “ We also cover general radio, electronic and electrical applications, such as theory, needed for the license class involved.”
Classes will be held every Thursday from 7: 00- 9: 00 p. m. beginning September 23, 1999 ending November 18, 1999. An Amateur Radio Exam has also been scheduled for November 20 from 7: 00 am – 12: 00 noon.
