Get Your License! Ham Class VE TESTING

Are you interested in getting your Ham Radio license?

The Marinette & Menominee Amateur Radio Club can help!  We offer classes to help you learn everything you need to get started! We usually hold a class in March, but if there are a number of interested people at other times of the year we would certainly consider doing more.

Our classes usually run 1 night a week for 4 weeks, with the Exam on the 4th week. We offer free study material online, along with some great youtube videos which will prep you for class material.

Register for our classes or for your license by filling out one of the forms below, and we'll be in touch when our next test or VE test session.

Our training committee Chairman and VE Examiner Lead is KD8OVR - Doug Dooley. Doug is an Extra Class Operator and serves in many capacities in our club.  He's a great teacher!
