Communications Volunteer Group Announces Amateur Radio Classes and Testing


The Lakeside Fire Protection District, in cooperation with the Communications Volunteer Group, is pleased to announce dates for the Technician Class radio classes and testing. This is an opportunity to obtain your FCC amateur radio license. This license allows amateurs to communicate on a number of frequencies, including those most commonly used during disaster communications.

The classes will be conducted over a series of four evenings followed by testing. These classes will be conducted at the Lakeside River Park Fire Complex on Lakeside Ave. The classes are two hours long and will prepare the student for passage of the Technician Class license.

Although the class is free, students will be required to obtain a copy of the ARRL "Ham Radio Technician License Manual (2nd edition). The text can be purchased locally at Ham Radio Outlet for $29.95. The store is located at 5375 Kearny Villa Road  #113.

To register for the class contact CERT Coordinator Lance Burford at You do not need to be a CERT Team member to attend.
