The classes will be held from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the Leesburg VFW Hall, 401 Old Waterford Road. They are open to anyone age 10 and older.
The classes will teach students what they need to know to pass the Technician Class license test, plus additional information about Amateur Radio culture, operating practices, what to consider when setting up your first station, and making that first contact with another Radio Amateur. No prior electronics knowledge is necessary and there is no Morse code requirement.
