Amateur Radio Technician License Class Winter 2018

posted Nov 29, 2017, 7:16 PM by Jeremy Betz
Amateur Radio (ham radio) is a popular hobby and service that brings people, electronics and communications together. People use ham radio to talk across town, around the world, or even into space, all without the Internet or cell phones. It's fun, social, educational, and can be a lifeline during times of need. 

The FCC Technician License exam covers basic regulations, operating practices and electronics theory, with a focus on VHF and UHF applications. You don’t need any prior experience or familiarity with electronics and you do not have to learn Morse Code! Technicians may operate FM voice, digital packet (computers), television, single-sideband voice and several other interesting modes. You can even make international radio contacts via satellites, using relatively simple station equipment.
