Ham radio license course starts March 11 and 31 in Brier

Saturday, February 22, 2014

Amateur or “ham” radio Technician and Extra License courses will be offered by the Emergency Services Coordinating Agency (ESCA) starting in March.

The entry-level Technician course will begin on Monday, March 31 and run for seven consecutive Monday evenings. The Extra license course will convene Tuesday evenings beginning on March 11th and run for seven weeks. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) exam for both courses is scheduled on Monday, May 19th.  

The beginner level Technician license is required for entry into the fascinating hobby of “ham” radio. It’s all about getting on the air and communicating with a region-wide network of ham radio operators for fun or community service.

For those already holding the Technician and General licenses, the Extra license is the senior-most license that offers access to more power output and frequencies required for world-wide communications. 

Both courses are held at the Brier City Hall from 7pm to 9pm at 2901 228th Street, SW, Brier, WA 98036.  

There is no charge for the course with the exception of the Technician or Extra class book available through ESCA at a discounted price of $25.00. The Federal Communication Commission’s fee for Technician and Extra exam is $15.00.  

For more information and/or to register contact Course Manager, Dan Good, at 425-776-3722.

The Emergency Services Coordinating Agency was created by the cities of Brier, Edmonds, Kenmore, Lake Forest Park, Lynnwood, Mill Creek, Mountlake Terrace, Mukilteo, Woodinville, and the Town of Woodway to provide city government disaster planning, mitigation, response, and recovery services.
