I've signed up for an Amateur Radio Licensing Course offered by the Santa Cruz Public Libraries, at the Scotts Valley branch, six Wednesday evenings May 29-July 3.
I was excited to come across this course, even though I already have a license. The SMRS course last August was a great way to get the license quickly, but I still don't know enough to get started. I see the license as a license to learn, and that's what I'm trying to do now.
The upcoming course is free, including a copy of the textbook, 2018-2022 Technician Class. When I tried to sign up, the class was full, but I jumped on the waiting list. A few days later, a librarian emailed me to ask me to come pick up the book, and a few days ago another email included a syllabus and six workbooks to work through before each class.
I hope this will be a good way to actually get started in the hobby!
