The Northern California DX Club (NCDXC) is starting an Elmering program designed to get newly-licensed amateur radio operators on the HF bands in September. According to the club’s website:
More information is available on the NCDXC website, including:
- A flyer that briefly describes the program.
- A PowerPoint presentation that goes into a little more detail.
You can’t sign up for the classes just yet. John, K6YP, says that they are currently working on the online registration system. When they get it working, students will be able to fill out a form on the NCDXC website, and the website will then issue him or her a Webex signup code and contact info for an individual Elmer.
Another restriction is that currently all of the program’s Elmers are in the San Francisco Bay area. They realize that their online students can be nearly anywhere, however. I’ve volunteered to Elmer one or two here in SE Michigan. I might suggest to our listeners who might be interested in being a local Elmer in this program that they contact John, K6YP, and offer their services.
