Our Next Ham-In-A-Day class

Hi everyone, we have had lots of questions about when we are going to have our next Ham-In-A-Day class.  We have been pushing it off because we cannot meeting in person in large groups.  We have decided to try our next class virtually using Zoom on September 12th, 2020.  It will not be the same as being in person but will probably work our just as well because it will be easier to share the slides, etc.

We will also have a testing session after the class.  The testing session will have to be in person and we are going to do it at my house again because that worked out well last time.

Here are the details:

When: September 12th, 2020
Where: Zoom
Class starts at 8:00am and will go probably till about 4:00pm
Testing starts at 6pm at 4222 Catholic Church Rd, Knoxville MD. 21758

Testing Session June 20th, 2020

June 20th, 2020 @ 11 AM:

Because of the COVID-19 situation we have missed 2 testing sessions already this year.  We have people that are waiting to test and decided to have a testing session on June 20th.  This will be one unlike we have ever done before.  Because we are still limited by the number of people we can have inside in a group, we are going to do the testing outside.

For at least this June session we are going to setup tables in my front yard and driveway so we can have a testing session.  We are also adding some additional requirements like masks, one time use tests instead of our regular booklets and more.  You can find the details here: http://frederickarc.org/ham-radio-testing/.  If you are interested in testing be sure to read that page so you know everything that is required.  Also, please pre-register for the test from the link on that page.

I have one popup that I can use to help keep everyone out of the sun (or rain) but if you have one we could borrow we can setup a couple.

We will also need some VE’s for this session.  I am curious to see how large of a turnout we have since testing has been basically not happening for a few months.
