Calling all hams-to-be!
Interested in becoming an Amateur Radio operator?
Well, here's a method that makes it easy! The Border City Radio Club is once again offering a course to help you study for and pass the Basic Amateur Radio examination. It's being taught by a long time member Jerry, VE3EXT. Jerry has been helping new hams for decades, and he can help you too!
The cost of the course is still TBD (expeted around $125), and includes a book; all study materials; exam fee; and membership to the BCRC. Course starts in September and runs for approximately 12 weeks (one day per week).

Welcome to the BCRC Home Page!
We meet once a month on the fourth Monday of each month (except holidays, and the months of July, August and December) at the Windsor Family Credit Union, Drouillard Rd @ Tecumseh Rd E in Windsor.Rear entrance, as that will be the only door unlocked. Guests are welcome. New members are even MORE welcome! You need not be a licensed Amateur Radio operator to join the club, however, if you are interested in becoming a licensed operator, please contact us, as we do hold courses to help new hams become licensed.
Live Swap Listings
You'll notice on the right of this page is an applet showing our "Swap and Shop" items. This listing is pulled automatically from our Swap and Shop section of the Forums. What that means is, as soon as someone posts a new item for sale or a new want on our Swap page, it will show up automatically in that applet.
It uses technology known as Really Simple Syndication (RSS). It's a means of seeing updates to a page as-they-happen.
At the bottom left of this page, you'll also see a link to "Feed Entries." That shows the RSS feed of this page. As updates are made to this page, that feed is updated.
Those of you who have a website of your own, (or who might be considering having one), could add this same "live feed" to your site. That way, anybody viewing your site can get a glimpse of the swap items listed in our swap as well. Just another way to draw visitors to your site.
For more info on RSS, try Google.
Some of you have Facebook or Twitter accounts. You'll notice there are buttons below each article that now let you "share" or "like" the articles here on your Facebook or Twitter or Google + pages, if you have one. Spread the word!
