License Classes and Testing

The Barstow Amateur Radio Club plans to hold a Technician License Class at least once per year. We also will be holding classes to support upgrading to higher class licenses as needed. Due to the COVID-19 restriction this is more of a challenge in 2021 than in previous years, and we will be using Zoom. We are exploring using Zoom along with in person meetings.

Currently we are looking having a Technician License class on Monday evenings. Details are being worked out, but hopefully we will be starting in March.

We are also looking at the best format for classes to support hams wanting to upgrade their license.

If you are interested in taking a class, or know someone who is, please fill out the form below. We will have an entry level Technician Class on Monday evenings. These will be online and possibly in person, so it will be best to limit each class to 10 students.

Note that membership in BARC is not required, and we do not charge anything for the class. We will discuss testing options and online study resources.

The ARRL Technician License Manual is an optional, but recommended text. If ordered through the class instructor this manual is $24.71 plus shipping rather than the normal retail price of $32.95 plus shipping. This is the spiral bound version. There are also paperback and Kindle versions available. You may find it even cheaper on Amazon.
