San Juan County’s amateur radio volunteers form a critical communications link between islands and to the mainland in the event of a major emergency or outage. The San Juan County Amateur Radio Society (www.sjcars.org) is hosting a training in Friday Harbor to prepare islanders to take the Amateur Technician test. This certification allows islanders to become a part of this crucial communications system.
The class is free but there is a $15 fee to the ARRL for taking the test.

Tuesday, Aug. 1, 1-3 p.m.
Thursday, Aug. 3, 1-3 p.m.
The test will be given on Saturday, Aug. 5, from 10 a.m.– noon.
