Radio Club

sponsored class

WEIRTON - The Steubenville-Weirton Amateur Radio Club, in cooperation with the Mary H. Weir Library, recently completed a series of classes for those wanting to take the FCC Amateur Radio License examination.

Accredited volunteer examiners administered the exam Saturday, and seven candidates passed the Technician Class exam, one passed the General Class exam and one passed the Extra Class exam.

There are now more licensed amateur radio operators in the United States than at any time in the past. Amateur radio operators, commonly called "hams," use their radio equipment to talk all over the world. Besides being a hobby, many hams volunteer their time, skills and equipment to assist with communications during times of emergency.

Anyone who is interested in learning more about amateur radio or getting licensed may call Lester Shields at (304) 723-1743.
