If you are having problems with any part of the study materials, use the “Contact Us” page to send us a message and  we can assign an ‘Elmer’ to you to help you with questions about getting your Amateur License.

You can also join the club e-mail list and ask questions on the club’s e-mail list.  Use the “Contact Us” page to send us a message and ask to join the e-mail list.

Then once you are a member of the list, simply post any questions there and you should get your questions answered there.
