General Class in Ann Arbor taught by Dan Romanchick - KB6NU
Starting on 255 E Liberty St #225. Classes will begin at 10 am and run until approximately . 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., 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
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
Ham Mentoring Offer
To any of our members who are new to the hobby, Tas and Doris are extending an open invitation to come to their home to view, and discuss their station. New club members can view their antenna system as well.
Again, this is an open invitation for LARC members only, and Tas & Doris request that if you want to visit you'll need to phone them first, please do NOT just drop in.

The LARC slow speed CW net is currently on indefinite hold at this time. This is due to a drop in attendance/interest.
