CTARC Write the FCC Exam - Jul '18

We received this letter via Tjerk ZS1J:
Dear Fellow Radio Amateur

You may recall that I alerted you to an opportunity to participate in an
FCC licence exam during August. It now looks like we have enough interest
to run such a session. The best date appears to be 25 August 2018 around

You can find full information here:
You can find free study material for all licence classes through that page.

You can see more about our work on promoting amateur radio in Africa and
the role that FCC licences might play here:
Please let me know if you are interested in participating. Please provide:
  1. Your name, ZS callsign and FCC callsign (if any);
  2. The exams you hope to write (Technician, General, Extra).
    You can write all three with one entry fee;
  3. Your availability on 25 August.
If you know of anyone else who would be interested, please let them know
about us and let me know about them. You're even welcome to draw attention
to the possibility of FCC examinations in your local club newsletter.

Finally, please let me know if you are not interested at all, so that I
don't bother you again.
