General Class in Ann Arbor taught by Dan Romanchick - KB6NU

Starting on Saturday, January 13, 2018, Dan Romanchik, KB6NU, will be teaching a General Class course at the All Hands Active (AHA) makerspace. AHA is located in downtown Ann Arbor at 255 E Liberty St #225. Classes will begin at 10 am and run until approximately noon. Unlike the one-day Tech classes, this class will run for eight to ten weeks, depending on how fast the class can get through the material.

There are several reasons that this is not a one-day General class. First, there’s more material to be covered than on the Tech test, and it’s covered in more depth as well. Second, the class is going to attempt to teach you more than just the answers to the test.

Having said that, you don’t have to show up for every class. A schedule will be published beforehand, and you can feel free to skip classes on topics that you already know. It’s not like you’re taking this class for college credit, and you’re responsible for whether or not you pass the test once the class is over.

There will be a $20 fee for the class, though, whether you come for a single session or all eight.

The text for the class will be my No-Nonsense General Class License Study Guide. You can purchase the e-book version for $7.99 (cheap!), or if you prefer a print version, they will be available for $10 (that’s a $5 discount). If you do want the print version, contact Dan, so that he can have enough on hand.

To register for the class, e-mail Dan at cwgeek@kb6nu.com.


Club Meetings
When: 4th Monday of each month at 7:00 pm (no meetings in July, August and December).

Where:  The Livonia Civic Center Library in the meeting rooms on the east wing off the foyer.

Club meetings follow a standard format and last about an hour and a half. Often a presentation is given by a club member on a current or relevant topic to amateur radio.

Refreshments are offered during a short break. As a courtesy to our members and speakers, we ask that you arrive a few minutes prior to the start of the meeting.
