ROARS offers ham radio class

Anyone who has ever been interested in participating in amateur, or “ham” radio, may want to sign up for a one-day Technician Class offered by the Ramona Outback Amateur Radio Society (ROARS).

Once signed up for the class, home study materials will be emailed to participants. The material can be studied alone or with friends, wherever the student chooses. An online practice test site is included. The study materials are free; there is a $15 exam fee.

On Nov. 12, the one-day class will begin at 8:30 a.m. The class will be followed by the FCC Technician license exam at 4 p.m.

The exam consists of 35 questions; only 26 need to be answered correctly to pass.

The Tech class and exam will take place at the Ramona Community Center at 434 Aqua Lane. To sign up, contact Jolene Dayton at or call 760-271-2088.

Class size is limited, so early sign-up is advised. There will also be a limited number of General Exams available by advance reservation only. Nov. 7 is the deadline.
