VARC HAM CRAM – Session Results

The VARC held the first ham cram of 2016 on Saturday February 20th and the Department of Health conference room on Savannah avenue.  It was a long day but several folks passed the exam and received their technician class license!  Congratulations everyone on a job well done!

Out of the 22 folks that signed up for the session 15 passed the exam.  This is a pretty good number of new hams for the South Georgia region.  Please take time to welcome them in person and on the air!
