WHERE: EAA 690 Hangar, Gwinnett County Airport – Briscoe Field, 690 Airport Rd, Lawrenceville, GA 30046 

MORE INFO: To register for our 2-day General License HamCram Class, use our registration form in the left column.  Pre-registration is REQUIRED.  No Walk-ins accepted.  This fee is non-refundable.  Our $25 fee covers the class and lunch both days, and the exam fee for the exam given Sunday at 4:00pm.  Lunch will be brought in to save time.

We will be using the Ham Radio School General License Study Guide for this class.  You can purchase the study guide locally at Ham Radio Outlet in Doraville, or purchase the book online at HamRadioSchool.com.  We encourage you to at least look over the material in a study book and take some practice tests.  We will go over every question in the General class question pool during the class, but remember that the test will only be 35 multiple choice questions.  If you get 26 out of the 35 questions correct, you will pass the test.  We suggest that you take some practice tests prior to the class to familiarize yourself with the question format and some of the material.  Go to our exam page for sample online tests towards the bottom.
