Amateur radio operators licensed

Published on December 7, 2017 1:20PM

From left, Grant County’s newest licensed amateur radio operators Ron Flores, Mariah Skidmore, Michael Shockley, Barb Dole and Ted Williams passed their Technician Class Amateur Radio License examination Dec. 4. This is the first time that groups of people have taken the FCC-approved exams in Grant County. With the encouragement of the Grant County Amateur Radio Club, Rick Allen, pictured in the background, held classes for four consecutive weeks. These five people, once their call signs are issued by the FCC, will be able to use local, regional and other repeaters to communicate in cases of emergencies.
