This year I had the great pleasure to teach UC Berkeley’s “Hands-on Ham Radio” seminar. We covered the basics of radio theory and operation and had a mega-licensing exam session in the Wozniak Lounge to cap things off! This exam session is held semesterly and was started by Prof. Miki Lustig a few years ago. It is without a doubt my favorite campus tradition at Cal.
55 Technician, 6 General, and 4 Extra licenses were awarded at this mega-session. Special thanks to the superb VE team for getting everybody in and out in just about 2 hours! Extra-special thanks go to Sharon Primbsch AA6XZ who organized the VE session (and has done so for at least 8 semesters running…)!!
