It is proposed that the Cascades Amateur Radio Society produce perpetual amateur radio license training given by video conference. A committee of volunteers would assemble and take turns presenting training centered upon an FCC pool question theme. The essence of the training would be presenting question-by-question with accompanying discussion for education purposes.
In order to make this work probably six (6) volunteers would be needed. Each would take turns giving a video conference presentation to whomever logged in that evening. Maybe nobody would log in or maybe a handful would log in.
Shown below is an illustration breaking down the FCC pool questions by category for the general class license. Any one volunteer would take one or two or maybe three of the categories and assemble a presentation with the central theme being the actual questions of the pool. In this way the structure is ready-made saving massive amounts of prep-time.
Presumably, there would be a PowerPoint slide template that everybody could use which would create the impression of uniformity between different presenters.
The public and other amateurs globally would be welcome to attend. We would especially invite amateur wanna-bees!
Wes (N8QM) will bring up this topic for discussion at the November CARS meeting. Please think about how this might be pulled off and if you might be interested in volunteering. There is no reason why a Technician Class license cannot present a module of the Extra Class exam. If only three or four volunteer then we should consider this a lost cause. I would really like to see six volunteers. Please consider that volunteers need not be CARS members.
