Amateur radio license course starts Sept. 21

my newsAn amateur or “ham” radio Technician course will be offered by the Emergency Services Coordinating Agency (ESCA) Monday evenings starting Sept. 21 and will run for seven consecutive Monday evenings (It is not required to attend every class).

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) exam is scheduled on Monday, Nov. 9. 

The beginner level Technician license is required for entry into the fascinating hobby of “ham” radio.  It’s all about getting on the air and communicating with a region-wide network of ham radio operators for fun or community service.

The course is held at the Brier City Hall from 7-9 pm at 2901 228th Street, SW, Brier.

There is no charge for the course with the exception of the Technician class book available through ESCA at a discounted price of $25 if ordered at least two weeks before the class begins (Sept. 7). The Federal Communication Commission’s fee for Technician and Extra exam is $15 paid to the examiners on the night of the exam.

For more information and/or to register please contact Course Manager, Vickie Fontaine, at 425-776-3722 or
