Through the efforts of Mancorad’s Paul Benfield KC9RKG Lakeshore Technical College (LTC) has minted 13 new Technician Class Licensees and Paul himself is now KC9RKG/AG General Class!
Paul saw an opportunity to include the Technician course material into class studies at LTC and a large group of his students prepared & tested.
He has several students who plan to test at a later date.
The Sheboygan ARRL VE Group lead the testing, with Art K9XJ, Ed K9IZT and Bob KC9HBA representing their team. Many thanks to the Sheboygan Team!
Participating from Mancorad in the test session were Bob KC9HBA and myself. Helping with administrative duties and observing were Paul KC9RKG/AG and my son Victor KC9NWB.
Bob spoke on ARES/RACES opportunities and I gave each candidate either Mancorad Information or SCARC (Sheboygan County Amateur Radio Club) information as appropriate.
I should mention that Paul passed his Technician Class on Feb 6th as a Mancorad/LTC Hamcram student who signed up the day before, and now that he has passed his General Class is already studying for Extra Class! Well done!
Congratulations to Paul and his students, and thank you to everyone who helped out!
