There is no charge for the courses or the test session but all students are
encouraged to have a copy of the respective ARRL License Manual. Current
editions of each license manual will be available the first two weeks of the
courses at a discounted price of $26 including sales tax. Please advise
Fred Stone (W8LLY at ARRL.net <mailto:W9LLY at ARRL.net> ) ASAP if you want a
book. Books also may be ordered directly from R&L Electronics and the ARRL
Bookstore. The current edition of the ARRL License Manual may be available
at local book stores and Amazon, etc. (be sure it's for exams given in 2012
Please pass this information along to any prospective hams you know. No
experience is required for the entry level (Technician Class) amateur radio
license & there is no age limit for obtaining an amateur radio license.
Also, all current Technician Class hams are encouraged to seriously consider
upgrading to General Class. The Greene County General Class course provides
an ideal opportunity.
