An Extra class on EchoLink?

After reading my post on the latest Tech Class, a reader e-mailed me, “I’m looking for an Extra Class. Do you know where I can find one.”

Very few clubs teach Extra classes. I think the main reason that there are so few is that there’s so much material, which, in turn, translates into a loooong class. From the teacher’s point of view that means that you not only have to find a teacher (or teachers) who is comfortable with all that material, but who is also willing to prepare the class material. This is not a small undertaking.
