General License Prep Course and Testing Session

General Class Prep Course

So you got your tech license. You’ve been on all the repeaters, you’ve played with packet. Maybe you’ve done some public service nets or Skywarn. Or maybe you’ve dabbled in six and ten meters.

But you want more. You want to be on HF.

Well this is your chance. The WVRA is sponsoring a General License Prep Session on Saturday, Sept 29 (9am-4pm) and Sunday, Sept 30 (9am-1pm). The course will be held at the Wisconsin State Patrol HQ, 2805 Martin Ave, in Wausau. Following the prep session, we will offer license exams for all levels of licenses.

The class is free, but please pre-register so we have enough materials for everyone. Your test session will cost $15. Please bring a copy of your current license, SSN, and payment (cash or check) on Sunday.

Our technician license prep classes have a 95% success rate, and we expect a very high success rate with our general class, too! We go over a lot of info, but if you’re ready to make the move to HF, this is your opportunity!

Please email if you have any questions.
