The Western Reserve Amateur Radio Club will offer classes for all general class amateur radio operators to upgrade to the Amateur Radio Extra Class license.

Classes will take place from 7 to 9:30 p.m. Thursdays beginning Jan. 9 through March 6 at ITT, 1030 N. Meridian Road.

The classes will be conducted by an American Radio Relay League registered instructor, and the exam will be administered by local ARRL volunteer examiner coordinators.

Participants must hold an Amateur Radio General Class license to take the course.

There is no cost, but participants must register by Dec. 16 and purchase the Extra Class 2012-2016 book by Gordon West, WB6NOA. For information contact Allen Avnet, AB8AA at 330-549-3051 or ab8aa@arrl.net.

What ever happened to the good old days when you went to the FCC field office in Pittsburgh to take the license exams and all of the call signs began with "W" ?

Don't know what "old days" is for you but I'm fairly old and an Air Force buddy had his licence back in the 70's and it started with "K". He was from Ill. Try google, there is a naming scheme of sorts but I can't remember offhand how it works.

I guess that qualifies as the "old days" :)
