 If you've ever wanted to check out the other ARRL publications...
ARRL Members can now view digital versions of QEX and NCJ as a new benefit. Members now have exclusive access to four magazines, each with their own unique content: QST, On the Air, QEX, and NCJ.
Each issue of QEX brings a variety of practical and theoretical articles, covering RF techniques and equipment--digital and analog, HF through microwaves; antennas and propagation;  components and building blocks; design and analysis software; power supplies; oscillators and synthesizers; and much more.

Club Safety Jackets
Bruce, n9con brought up the idea that we can order safety jackets at a club rate if we all order at the same time. These are great to show our club pride, along with our call sign on them in reflective tape, for a great price of $31 each.  So whether you're working at Breakfast on the Farm, part of the Winterfest Communications Team, or during storm spotter activity, these jackets will ensure that you are highly visible and SAFE! Send or bring your size & call sign info to the next meeting to get yours ordered!


2020 Technician Class Postponed!

Material & Resource Page

NWTC is now extending its spring break until March 28th and the local libraries have suspended all meeting room usage.  Because of this and the increasing number of event postponements and closures due to the evolving Coronavirus, we will be postponing the remaining two Ham Class sessions (instruction on March 17th and exam on March 24th) until the situation stabilizes.

We will inform registered class participants the new session dates and times when they become known. In the interim, we recommend that you continue to take practice exams, review your text, and watch some of the technician ham class YouTube videos referenced in your Amateur Radio Technician Prep Class handout (YouTube for Technician Ham Class September 2018 Chapters 1-9).

Thank you for your understanding.
