Training is something that should never end, whether your a new comer or an old timer.

Hoodview Amateur Radio Club is committed to helping you learn.

Training takes many forms at HARC. We provide structured classes so that it becomes easy for you to pass your Technician, General, or Extra class exams. General and Technicians classes are held at Mt Hood Community College. We also have training hosted in homes to provide a more rapid response to your training needs. In addition, you will find many Elmers, people willing to pull along side, to help you learn.

Tech and General Classes

Classes are starting in the fall and runs for 2 Saturdays. Textbook: ARRL General Class License Manual (available at Ham Radio Outlet or direct from ARRL) The cost of book, $24.95.  We will reserve Mt. Hood Community College’s Fisheries building for two Saturdays for a Tech and General Class.  Classes are from 8:30 am – 4:00 PM

Next set of classes are September 6 and 13.

Also a class has been scheduled for November 1st and 8th.

Rather than having a VE exam on the second day we will refer the class to the regular VE exam on the following Saturday . This will allow more time for instruction and time for the students to prepare and practice for the exam.

Contact Ed, N7TL at 503-257-4822 or at  for information on the next class.


Extra Class Study Group

We are gathering a list of names of those amateurs that are interested in starting an extra class study group. Please contact Ed to join the list.


Check the calendar for the next VE exam test session hosted by a  team of VE’s.
