Tonight (Thursday) we had an exam session for some of the folks in the Ham Class. We had 10 show up to take the exam, all 10 passed. Congratulations goes out to… Allen LeBaron Alan Parker Lucille Hadfield Linda Rasmussen Boyd Rowley Connie Rowley Randy Grover Tracy Cox Julie Thurston Kyle Mohlman We also need to add John Elsworth who drove to Kaysville several weeks ago and took the exam. I expect another 10 – 15 will take it on December 8th at our regular test session and a few may try for their general that have already passed. Thanks to Eric Larsen and Ted McArthur who helped me with the test session. Kevin Reeve N7RXE
