Submitted by San Juan County Amateur Radio Society
San Juan County’s amateur radio volunteers form a critical communications link between islands and to the mainland in the event of a major emergency or outage. The San Juan County Amateur Radio Society (www.sjcars.org) is hosting a training in Friday Harbor to prepare islanders to take the amateur technician test. This certification allows islanders to become a part of this crucial communications system.
The four-hour class at the San Juan Island Fire Station, 1011 Mullis Street is free, but there is a $15 fee to take the test. To register or for details, contact Bryan Hoyer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Tuesday, Sept. 12, 5-7 p.m.
- Thursday, Sept. 14, 5-7 p.m.
- Test: Saturday, Sept. 16, 10-12 a.m.
