RARC Monthly Meeting – October 8, 2019 @ 6:30PM

The Rochester Amateur Radio Club (RARC) monthly meeting is at 6:30  p.m on the second Tuesday of every month, at the Rochester City  Emergency Operations Center located in the lower level of  the 2185 Wheelock Drive Rochester Fire Station No. 2 building.

Meetings start with a  brief club-business discussion, then a  Rag-Chew time with treats, and finally a very semi interesting presentation  of amateur radio interest.

Feel free to join us for an optional social dinner before at 5pm at Whistle Binkies North, voted best bar in Minnesota!

Contact Bob, K0SIR@ARRL.NET with meeting ideas or suggestions for future meetings!

Fall Technician License Class – Starts October 19 @ 10:00AM

Our next Technician Class starts October 19th. The class runs three consecutive Saturdays from 10 a.m. to approximately 5 p.m.

The class is $25, and students need to obtain the ARRL License Manual, Fourth Edition, and start reading Chapters 1-4. We will cover most of the information in these chapters on the first day. We’ve been doing very well this year. I had a very full class in the spring, and three in my summer class. However, for each class, I have had many people discussed that never made it to the class. If your friends weren’t able to attend, here’s another try!
