TESTING SESSION JULY 17th
For those ready to test for Technician, General or Amateur Extra licenses, there is a test session coming up next Monday from 1630-1800 local time. If that time reference seems a bit odd, you probably are not ready for testing.
The test session will be held in Hamilton Montana BJ’s restaurant, south west banquet room.
The regular monthly Bitterroot Amateur Radio Club (BARC) meeting starts immediately after with casual dinner, radio amateurs socializing. The formal meeting begins at 1900 and typically runs for an hour.
