Ham Testing Returns!

Posted on 18 April 2014 (0)

Are you lonely?
Need someone to talk to?
Do discussions about volts, amps, watts, ohms, and high voltage excite you?
Are you a social outcast without a hope of ever finding companionship?

If you answered yes to all of these questions, you are probably already a ham. If you answered no to any of them, you probably aren’t a ham….but we can fix that!

Come ruin your social life the right way by taking the amateur radio exams at LayerOne! If you’re looking to upgrade (read: become even more uncool and/or lose your significant other) we can handle that for any amateur radio license class, too!

Sign up at THIS LINK, bring $14 (cash only), and two forms of ID (one should be a government issued photo ID, such as a driver’s license).

Sincerely,
The LayerOne Staff

Wait, it’s not a box?

Another year, another tamper-evident contest! A departure from the weekend long contests of previous years, this year requires only 30 minutes of time to compete. Don’t be fooled — this contest will still require you to bring your A game!

Oh, and did we mention you don’t get a box this year? You get a keycard to a room. More details on the Tamper Evident Contest page! Sign up NOW!

Sincerely,
The L1 Staff
