ARRL East Bay Section

General

The General Class license is the second of three US Amateur Radio licenses. To upgrade to General Class, you must already hold a Technician Class license (or have recently passed the Technician license exam). Upgrading to a General license–which conveys extensive HF privileges—only requires passing a written examination. Once you do, the entire range of operating modes and the majority of the amateur spectrum below 30 MHz become available to you.

The East Bay Amateur Radio Club (EBARC) and West Contra Costa Adult Education (WCCAE) will offer a class to prepare applicants for the Amateur Radio General Class License Course, starting Sept. 12, 2017 and ending Dec. 12. The class will meet on Tuesday from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM at the Alvarado Adult School, 5625 Sutter St., Richmond, CA 94804. Textbook is The ARRL General Class License Manual, 7th Edition. Books will be available for purchase.

Register at the West Contra Costa County School District Adult Education Office, 5625 Sutter St., Richmond (510) 237-1444 or online at: http://www.wccae.info/reginfo.html
Class fee is $15 paid to WCCAE. FCC examinations and license applications will be administered at the final class session by the EBARC Volunteer Examiners. Exam fee will be $15.
