Emergency Training



By KF7SQE - Posted on 15 October 2016

A class is being offered in November for the Technician class license. The class will run two Saturdays in November, on the 5th and the 12th. The hours will be from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm on November 5 and 9:00 am to 2:00 pm on November 12. The class and testing will be held in the conference room on the second floor in the Whitefish Depot. The address is 500 Depot Street, Whitefish.

The testing session will be held immediately following the finish of class on November 12 at 2:00 pm (approximately). TESTING WILL BE OPEN TO ANYONE WHO WANTS TO TEST; TECHNICIAN, GENERAL OR EXTRA. Testing fee is $14.00 and if you are upgrading your license we will need a signed copy of your current license.

We will be using the Gordon West, Technician Class 2014-18 FCC Element 2 Radio License Preparation 8th Edition. We highly recommend that you get your book before hand and study! We have books available and they are included in the cost of the class.

Cost of the class is $35.00. If you have your own current Gordon West book, we will deduct $21.00 from the cost of the class. PRE-REGISTRATION FOR THE CLASS IS REQUIRED! Please contact Leo Yudysky at lyudysky@centurytel.net or by calling 863-2680 and leave a message.


Make your registration check out to Leo Yudysky and send to this address;
Leo Yudysky
1740 Hill Meadows Road
Whitefish, MT 59937.

Again, that is $35.00 for class and book OR $14.00 if you already have your own "current" Gordon West book. Arrangements will be made to meet and get your book to you as soon as your registration fee is received. Please include your email and phone number.

Walk-in's will be taken if there is room.

By Anonymous - Posted on 02 March 2010

Every Saturday morning at 9am at Sykes Restaurant located at 202 2nd Ave. West, Kalispell.

This is an informal get-together for an "eyeball QSO".

EVERYONE is invited, especially NEW hams! This is an excellent forum for new hams to be able to sit down with seasoned hams and absorb the hobby! Come on down and enjoy some GREAT Amateur Radio talk over coffee, ham and eggs!
