Technician Class Cancelled

The Technician license class originally scheduled for this month has been cancelled for now. It is “Parked” on two Saturdays, May 16 & 23. Depending on how the coronavirus outbreak goes, it will settle on a pair of dates. Feel free to sign up, even if it puts you on a waiting list.
