The license exam will be on Saturday, November 17th at MCR (Mountain Community Resources) in Felton mid-day.
The study session is free, but the The ARRL Ham Radio License Manual is approximately $30 depending on the format. One source is Amazon: https://smile.amazon.com/ARRL-Radio-License-Manual-Spiral/dp/1625950829/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1537972199&sr=8-1&keywords=technician+license+manual

There are many on line tools for studying: https://hamstudy.org/tech2018 and https://www.kb6nu.com/study-guides/ are two.
If you are interested in attending, please email Bob at firstname.lastname@example.org or myself email@example.com. Please include your preferred email and phone number. You do not have to attend the study sessions to take the license exam. More about the license exam in a future post.
