June 16th Tech Class – Report by K5POP

June 16, 2012 Tech Class

The weather was good, there was plenty of parking, and the 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. schedule went even better than planned. That was the experience the Saturday before Father’s Day as volunteers from the Alamo Area Radio Organization and the Southwest Research Center Amateur Radio Club co-hosted their eleventh crash class for entry into ham radio, the one day Technician License Review Course.  Location was in Fair Oaks Ranch, near Boerne.

Eight of the eleven participants passed the exam and at least two are already preparing for the General License exam. Several were interested in visiting Field Day sites the next weekend. One student was a first responder for a statewide health agency, one was a geologist, and one was a retired police detective.

A very big thank you to the guest instructors: David W5QS, Teri KC5BJI, Johnny K5POP, Jeremy N5HIM, David AD5TE, Erik KD5YZU, and Don W5DK. Super thanks to Andy for the splendid AV service and to Teri for providing so much event preparation, coordinating the lunch, the treats and the beverages.
