I attended in 1961 and found work right away. Wonderful experience.

I was not familiar with Bill Ogden, but he is apparently well-thought of in California radio circles. We recently established a Texas Broadcasting Museum in Kilgore. Kudos to the Modesto museum for helping to preserve our radio heritage.

I attended during 1966 during the time the school moved from Burbank to Huntington Beach. It was an especially stressful time because the FCC had just changed all four of the second class license tests. Though Bill felt I was most prepared based on classroom testing I flunked the second but got a waiver to retest in a month, which I passed.

I attended the school in the early 70’s. I have fond memories of my time there. Getting my First Class license enabled me to continue a 35 year radio career.

Thank you Jim and Patty for sharing your memories of ROES. You have brought back so many memories of those days spent at ROES with Bill, Tally Thora and others.

Attended Ogden's July 1967 in Huntington Beach. Met some great people including Steve Rood, Steve Newman, Brad Woodington from the Bay Area.
There was nothing like the experience of studying for the First Phone from Bill Ogden and math from Jim McDonald.

Wow!! How wonderful! Thanks again for all you do on the website and keeping such important people and memories alive. Right after I got my 1st I went across the street in Huntington Beach and told them I wanted to fly one of those airplanes over Disneyland. The guy asked me if I had a license. I told him "there ain't nothin higher than a first class license!"
