***** NOTICE *****

In accordance with current CDC guidelines, wearing a face mask that covers both the nose and mouth is not required for individuals who have been fully vaccinated or have natural immunity. However, a face covering is required for those individuals who have not yet been vaccinated.

This applies to all indoor WVARA activities and to all outdoor WVARA activities where social distancing is not feasible.

NOTE:  The wearing of a face mask may be required by the facility hosting the WVARA activity.

The WVARA will be holding an online Technician license class beginning on Tuesday evening, September 7, 2021. This class prepares individuals who do not currently hold an amateur radio license to pass the examination for the Technician class license.

The class will be held online via Zoom on Tuesday evenings for 8 sessions. The first session is a short introductory/organizational meeting. The next 7 sessions are the actual instructional classes. Class sessions will begin at 6:30 PM and should end no later than 9:00 PM.

To participate in the class, you will need to have a computer or a tablet that has the free Zoom application installed. The computer or tablet should have a webcam, but that is not an absolute necessity.
  • On a Windows PC, use the following link to download & install the Zoom application: https://zoom.us/support/download
  • On a Mac or tablet, look for Zoom in your App Store.
