August 2014 Technician Licensing Class a BIG SUCCESS!

Montgomery County Amateur Radio Emergency Service sponsored and held a 1 day technician prep class on August 16 from 8am-5pm at the HEB on FM1488.  Of the 20 students that initially registered for the class, 16 students showed up.  I was the instructor and delivered the presentation  that covered the entire Element 2 (2014 version) question pool.  While the day was long and the time was short, we made it thru everything.  The students did great on their pre-work study of the questions.

On Sunday, August 17, 2014, we held a test session from 1pm to 3pm at the same location.

All 16 students from the class attended as well as one additional walk-in.

Myself and six additional VE’s (Mark T, Mark R, Jack, Stephen, Henry, Dave) administered the exam and had everything graded in just under 2 hours.

The results are very good:  13 new Technician class licenses and 1 General class license was granted!

Great job to the class and my fellow VE’s!
