CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR NEW TECHNICIAN CLASS LICENSEES !
During the month of July, we ran a Technician Class for local residents interested in obtaining their Ham Radio License.
We are happy to announce that all 5 of our students have obtained their Technician Class License and received their call signs from the FCC.
They are also new members of our Club, and have received their BaoFeng Dual-Band Handheld Radios.
Congratulatios to: Mark Manley - KM4VRS, Marion Girardot - KM4VRT, Ben Reser - WB4GOD, Brad Haag - KM4VRU, and Zenon Ayala - KM4VVL. Look for them on the air!
We would also like to thank our Instructors: Pete - K1PJ, and Neal - W4JNL for their time and effort to teach the class.
Randy Payne - K4EZM has sent out letters inviting them to join ARES.
A special thanks goes out to the VE Exam Team from the Lake Wales Radio Club led by Al Bentley - K2RXD, who took the time to come to Sebring and conduct the testing and expedite the processing of the paperwork. Students who passed the test on Saturday afternoon, received their call sign by 8 am on Monday morning!
Also, the Lake Wales Club conducts testing on the first Saturday of the month at the Red Cross in Winter Haven.
ATTENTION: We're looking for HCARC members that would be willing to "Elmer" people interested in becoming Amateur Radio Operators.
Contact Pete - K1PJ@arrl.net if interested.
