A New Idaho State Convention May Be in the Works

Idaho ARRL Asst. Section Manager Dan Marler told the members of the Magic Valley Amateur Radio Club Saturday that he is working to bring back the Idaho State Convention.  He said the convention was a great thing for Idaho hams and he would like to help the various clubs around the state work together to bring it back.  He said with several clubs working on it there is a better chance of long-term success.  He will be forming a work group soon with representatives of the various clubs around the state to start working toward that goal.  The meeting will be announced later but will probably be held in the Boise area.  The Idaho State Convention was started in 2009 by the Voice of Idaho ARC.  The last year it was held was 2017.

 
HAM RADIO LICENSE CLASS 
I have scheduled a Technician License Class for this fall.  If you have any
individuals (i.e. friends, family, acquaintances) who would like to take the class
and become an "Official" Ham Radio Operator, please advise them of the class.

Class sessions will be on four consecutive Thursday evenings -- October 25, November
1, November 8, and November 15.  Each class session will be two and a half hours
long -- from 7:30 to 9:00 in the evening.  The classes will be held at the Scout
Center on east Falls Avenue -- where the Club station is located.

There will also be two optional review sessions, for any students who needs/wants to
get more information on the license topics.  These sessions will be on Tuesday
evenings -- November 6 and November 13.

License testing will be on Saturday November 17.  This is the regularly scheduled
MVARC Testing date.

There will be a student fee for the class.  The fee will cover the License exam fee
($15) and the License manual ($22 or $27).  Total fee will be $37 or $42.  (The
difference in the price comes from my failure to decide which manual -- ARRL or
Gordon West -- I want to use!  I will make my decision next week, and will let you
know.)

If you have anyone interested in taking the class, please let me know.  Send me
their name and contact information (phone number and/or email address).  Send the
information to my personal email -- shagerty@pobox.com.
