Pelican Bay Amateur Radio Club is offering classes for anyone interesting in amateur radio, also known as ham radio.

Classes will be from 8 a.m. to noon Saturdays, May 11 and 18, at Chetco Activity Center, 550 Chetco Lane, Brookings. The classes, taught by club member Bob Wilkinson, are for people interested in taking the Amateur Radio Technician Class license test.

Each class will consist of four hours of concentrated work, and requires an equal amount of work at home, Wilkinson said.

The amateur radio license test is scheduled for June 1 at the Chetco Community Public Library.

For more information and to reserve a seat, call Wilkinson at  541-469-1815 as soon as possible.
