    Hi.
    Where could I take the technician class exam here in Nashville? Tks, Robert

  2. I have had a Technician license since 1976, what do I need to do to upgrade to General class?

    • The ARRL has a General Class exam study guide available for sale on their web site. There is also an online supplement available for those who purchased the book.

      Gordon West WB6NOA also sells General Class study materials. The study guide book is available and he also offers an audio version of the course if you would rather listen than read.

      UPDATE: Don, since your Technician license is pre-1987, the FCC will grant “grandfather” credit for the General (Element 3) written exam. You will need to bring proof to the VE session in order to receive this credit. More information is on the ARRL Exam Element Credit Rules and Instructions section along with a list of accepted documentation. [Thanks to Russ Ward W4NI for providing this information!]

      I hope this answers your question. Good luck.

    Any one interested in a Gem Quad antenna? Also, I have a pair of Drake twins, T4XB and T4B with MS4 ps;. The Drakes may need some work since I have not used them in some time.
    Call me Ben, KA4N, 832-4417 or 615 618 5587

  4. To Whom It May Concern
    Hello, I am trying to sell my late fathers Golden Eagles and I thought maybe someone in your organization may be interested in purchasing them or may know of someone that may. Thanks
