Ham Radio Technician Class license class in Babylon LI/Sept

Post by Willy_F » Mon Aug 26, 2013 5:12 pm

The Great South Bay ARC holds Tech, General, and Extra classes beginning in September on Tuesday nights at Babylon Town Hall on Sunrise Hwy if anyone from LI is interested. I'll post more details when I get the exact start date. It's a pretty good class, a great instructor, and overall a friendly bunch of folks.

Just started studying for the Tech Lic. Suffolk County Radio club tests once a month in Mastic. Aiming for the Oct 24th test if my progress gets me to the point I can pass. Got some good info on Ham from a recent meeting with Long Island Tactical Preppers. Since this chapter has pretty much folded LITP is filling my preppers needs.

Since last post have acquired the Tech lic and the following month, the General license. Not too difficult at all. KD2EWM clear.

Currently have an Anytone 5888 mobile unit in my BOV, 4 BaoFengs and 4 Motorola GRMS radios. Constructing a field expedient antenna based on a 292 set up detailed in the Ranger Handbook. Plan on conducting a field exercise next week- patrol-hike into a nature preserve - set up the antenna and make contact with the mobile unit.
