   License Classes Are Underway

The Greene County Amateur Radio License Courses, jointly sponsored by the three Greene County amateur radio clubs (Bellbrook, Fairborn and Xenia) and Greene County ARES, are meeting from 7 to 9 p.m. on Sundays and will conclude April 15.  A Greene County VE Test Session is scheduled for 6 p.m. April 22.
The entry level Technician Class Course meets in the Training Center at the Bellbrook Amateur Radio Club Clubhouse, Room 1 Sugarcreek Elementary School, 51 South East Street in Bellbrook.  No prior experience is required and there is no minimum age required to earn a Technician Class license.  Morse Code no longer is required for any amateur radio license.
