    And the study materials were really cheap on e-bay...

    Of course, these ham-in-a-day sessions give QRZ a big crop of newbies that provide us no limit of technically-challenging questions, such as "Where can I find my license info?" and "How do I build a diapole with 6x gain?"

    Oh well...

    Pretty cool idea, have you considered advertising this elsewhere. On this site many already have their license and are already in the groove to get one.

    wow - Was this posted by one of the "instructors"? I always associated Ham In A Day with going from unlicensed to Tech in one session. But what the heck is this?

    I would gladly help anyone interested in preparing for any amateur class exam, but I would never touch a Ham In A Day situation. I expect more commitment than that from my students.

    How about for someone like me who has a non FCC license but would like to return to the hobby here in the USA?

    Since you have sat for a test and been licensed in the UK you really shouldn't find any difficulty obtaining a US license. Free food, a convenient venue is probably worth the cost.
    I think many of us have a problem with simply hosing down people off the street and handing them a Baofeng and telling them they are now a real HAM.
