These eight licensed to ham it up
Ellsworth Wisconsin 126 S. Chestnut St. 54011

All eight students attending the St. Croix Valley Radio Amateurs licensing class in Baldwin on March 23-25 passed the exam. They have now received their call signs from the FCC, and are officially recognized to transmit. Ham radio operators enjoy a fun hobby, and many volunteer their services in disasters and emergencies, as back-up communications.
