April 2, 2011 VE Session Results

Here is a great report from Steve, K4SDJ on today's test session.  These are three people from the recent Technician class that we taught in Feb.

Success Continues!

A VE Session was held at the Chatham County EOC annex on April 2. Three participants tested and the results were superb. Jennifer Rodriguez obtained her Technician License and Christine Hale (KK4ANA) and John Miller (K4WAV) both upgraded to General. Congratulations to all of them for their success.

I would also like to than Bill DeLoach (K4WP), Joe Carroll (AG4BO), and Sue Jonas (W4SWJ) for their assistance in putting on the VE Session. Without them, it would have been impossible to administer the exam.

D-STAR InfoCon Workshop Scheduled for April

This one-day workshop will provide information and training on all levels of D-STAR, the Digital Smart Technology for Amateur Radio. Classes will be organized to allow participants on all levels from new users to repeater system administrators gain knowledge about D-STAR’s digital voice and data technology. The program provides three class tracks for those new to D-STAR, more experienced users and system administrators for repeaters.

D-STAR InfoCon will be held at Georgia Gwinnett College in Lawrenceville, Georgia, just 30 minutes northeast of downtown Atlanta. Participants can choose from informative, hands-on classes to get you started for the new D-STAR user to more advanced topics for experienced users. Classes for repeater system administrators will provide valuable information on topics from repeater basics to complete setup and ongoing administration.
