2019 Ham Cram

We decided to add an 8-hour Technician Class Ham Cram following the 2019 CERT Training. Overall it went well with 60% of the class passing the Technician test. We’re planning to offer this again in 2020 and working to put together a longer multiple evening class for those that are interested.
