Awesome Day at the CARC Clubhouse!

Awesome day at the CARC Clubhouse!

Saturday, Feb. 13, 2021, the Volunteer Examiner Team administered Amateur Radio license exams to 26 candidates. The test session was broken into separate sessions to maintain state and local social distancing guidelines. Out of the 26 candidates, 16 earned their Technician License, 7 earned their General and 2 became Amateur Extras. Congratulations to all those who earned or upgraded their ticket.

The examination process is handled by volunteer HAMs, so when you think you are ready to take the test you can take it right here in Cleveland. The Cleveland Amateur Radio Club has test sessions on the second Saturday of every month except December at 10:00AM Eastern time. Special testing sessions are occasionally approved under extenuating circumstances.

To learn more about the club and get acquainted with others who share your interest in communications, make plans to attend an upcoming meeting. Informal study sessions are held at the clubhouse each Saturday from 8AM-10AM Eastern time. Formal meetings are held on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month except December at 7:00PM Eastern at the clubhouse on 560 Johnson Boulevard. It’s easy to spot – there are dozens of antennas around the building.
