On behalf of one of our great friends, Norma Libby of W5YI, I wanted to pass the following information along about HAM Radio Training and Testing.
For those of you unfamiliar with HAM Radio, this is not only an excellent way of having backup communication, but also for having fun!

The class information below is for the entry level of HAM Radio license - the Technician License. All the details you need are below...
