Licensing Classes

Several times a year, the RVARC offers a series of courses designed to prepare participants for their license examinations for the Technician, General, or Extra-Class licenses. For more on these license grades see “Getting Licensed” on the American Radio Relay League (ARRL) website.


RVARC License Class Instructors (left-right): Rick Arens KF7VZ, Dale Troutman N7IXS, Johnny Jones WA6RHK, Bill Shrader W7QMU, Joe Gunderson AF7GN, Ryan LePage KD7RQ, and Curt Hadley KF7VZV. (Click for larger view) 

The next Technician/General-class course offered in the Medford area will start with a “Meet & Greet Session” on July 27th, 2014 at 3 pm at the Smullin Health Education Center (part of the Asante Rogue Valley Medical Center) at 2825 E Barnett Rd, Medford, Oregon.  (You may order your manuals at the Meet & Greet – the actual Class Sessions will start August 17th, 2014 – and Walk-Ins are always welcome! )

This course will combine instruction for both the Technician and General license classes.  This will make it possible to study to take both exams at the same time when you are ready.  Alternately, you can take just the Technician class exam and prepare to go for your General-class “ticket” later.

We will also offer a BASIC SOLDERING SKILLS CLASS on August 10th, 2014
