There’s a Northern California HAM radio class on offer next month in the Sacramento Valley area. The class, sponsored by the Rubicon Trail Foundation, will take place on January 21st from 9:00am to 5:00pm and the test will be given on February 4th from 9:00am to about 2:00pm.

The cost of the class is $15 plus the cost of the book (ARRL Ham Radio License Manual, 2nd edition. published July 1 2010), which you’ll need to buy on your own after you register. The course instructors are adamant that you get this exact edition and publication date, as being able to follow along in the class depends on it.

Class participants will be offered group-rate prices on two radios, a Yaesu FT-60 portable and/or Yaesu FT-8800 mobile radio (the latter is pictured above).

Hat tip to Anthony for the info!
