The Ham Radio Class To Take After You Get Your License

Introduction to Amateur Radio
and Emergency Communications

This class assumes you have just received your license and have lots of questions about terms used, operating protocol, the different ham bands, setting up your radio to access a repeater. (If you donít know what a repeater is Ė donít worry. Youíll learn it in the class.) You will learn how to participate in a directed net and handle emergency radio traffic. The class is both lecture and hands-on exercises. It is not designed to help you pass any ham radio test.

Bring your radio (and instruction manual), if you have one. If you donít have them, come anyway. Weíll have one you can use.
