Back to Basics classes were put together out of the need of new and old hams learning about different aspects of the hobby. There are many new hams who get their Technician license and ask “what’s next?”. These classes are to help answer that question! We will help guide you on “what’s next” and hopefully show you some interesting things along the way.
Back to Basics classes run from October to March on the 1st Friday of the month starting at 7pm. They are located in our regular club meeting location at Missouri Baptist Hospital, Goldfarb School of Nursing. Click here for more info on Back to Basics location.
Back to Basics will start back up in Oct 2018, so if your a new ham or old ham wanting to learn new tricks, these classes will help jump start your hobby!
