So You Want To Be A HAM!


The Oro Valley Amateur Radio Club offers Technician License Classes based on the number of requests and the availability of instructors. Classes are held one night per week for 6 weeks from 6:00pm until 9:00pm.  After the last class, the FCC License Test will be offered.  Students are required to purchase the class textbook – ARRL Radio License Manual. The class fee is $25 and the ARRL charges a $15 fee for the test.
