Title: Scholarships to be Awarded
Post by: W1RC on June 09, 2014, 11:19:10 PM
Looks like a couple of our valued Staff members are going to have a chance to upgrade their licenses over the summer.  Thanks to Christina, KT1NA and John, W1AI. NEAR-Fest has been provided with two account passwords to give to deserving staff members as a kind of "thank you" for their efforts in helping us pull this off every six months.

Visit their web site if you want more information on their upgrade courses......highly recommend them.  They work

Sure wish they were around in 1981 when I got MY Extra.  Boy, did I ever have to work!
