This is the place to sign up. And here's the info about the class:

      Jul. 23, 1PM Test session

Who: Benton County ARES. Please use the link on http://www.bcares.org to register.
Contact John Stanley, N8GFO (n8gfo@arrl.net) for more information. If you are
getting this in reply to an email registering for the class, then you already are.
If not, let me know you're going to be coming.


If you want to get your amateur radio license but need just a little
bit of push, or maybe someone who can answer the questions that stand
in the way, this is your chance.

The classroom work will cover most of the things you need to know to
pass the Technician Class ham license test. It won't teach you how
to make or fix your own radios, or how to be a great operator. It won't
cover every bit of information that may appear on the test, but will
cover most of it.

On Sunday afternoon, you'll have a chance to take the test. That's
the only part of the process that will cost you money. $15.

Because of the highly compressed nature of the class, it is highly
recommended that you read the book before you come. The book is
available from ARRL HERE.

Or from Amazon HERE.

BE CAREFUL: if you order online, make sure you get the current edition (3rd).
