Upcoming Technician Classes for New Hams

Ever since I announced the opening of my store a few weeks ago, I have had many inquiries from people wanting to obtain their Ham Radio license.  In response to these questions, I contacted several clubs and instructors, asking them when their next classes were.  So far I have only found one in Tarrant County, but a few others in the DFW area overall.  Below is a list of Upcoming Technician Classes for New Hams.

I’ll try to keep this list updated.  I have been added to mailing lists for these instructors, and requested that they let me know ahead of time when the classes will be so that I can announce them here on this blog and to my mailing list.  If you aren’t on the mailing list, go signup today, it is a good way to keep in touch with what is going on, both with my store and with the DFW Ham Community overall.


This class has started already, it began on Tuesday September 9 and runs each Tuesday evening from 7pm-10pm for 6 weeks.

This will be a 2-session class offered on Sunday 11/16 and Sunday 12/7.  Per the instructor, you will need to do the majority of studying on your own.  The 11/16 class is a 4-hour session in which you can discuss the overall idea of the studyguide and the test, and ask any questions you have.  After studying on your own for 3 weeks, you meet again on 12/7 for a full-day book review.  At the end of this day, the test is given.
