Students learning about the thrill of Amateur Radio

April 16, 2019 – Classes began this evening for students wishing to obtain their FCC amateur technician class license. A total of nine 2-hour classroom sessions are scheduled for students to prepare for their license exam in the tenth class. All of the Tuesday evening (6 pm to 8 pm) sessions are kindly being hosted by the American Red Cross of the Virgin Islands at their Sunny Isle headquarters.

A total of eight instructors from the St. Croix Amateur Radio Club have volunteered to teach various portions of the class. The classes will not be only information oriented, but also incorporate ‘hands on’ opportunities to utilize their newly learned skills.

A total of 30 students from many walks of life are interested in obtaining their license for a variety of personal reasons, however over-arching themes were community service and communications following storms. Many community and governmental organizations are represented in the class mix. (American Red Cross, Bureau of Corrections, FEMA, Juan Luis hospital, STX Rescue, VITEMA and WTJX Broadcasting.)
