Always wanted to be a ham radio operator? Here’s your chance. There is a one-day “ham cram” session on April 19. This is a study session where you simply study the questions and the correct answers, then take the test. The success rate usually surpasses 90% and sometimes hits 100%. While you don’t learn a lot about ham radio, you do get your license quickly. Not to worry – there are a lot of follow-on classes available that will fill in the blanks. If you are interested, go to www.baears.com and click on the “sign up” link on the left side. Price is $30 and seating is limited to the first 100 people. Once you have your license, you can join the other hams in Los Altos and provide vital communications capabilities when the big one hits.
