MAC Credit (What's this?): No

Congratulations! You just got your Ham Radio license and are anxious to get started... but how? There were plenty of new terms and concepts that you came across as you studied for your FCC exam, but what do they really mean? Puzzled by simplex vs. repeaters? Can't tell a PL tone from an offset? And, how do I get on the air with my radio? If this sounds like you, then this class – An Introduction to Emergency Communications – will give you plenty of the basics about your new hobby with hands-on exercises that should get you started with Ham Radio and Emergency Communications.

This is the first of two basic courses designed to get new hams familiar with some common operating procedures, emergency communications, and getting on the air.

Attendees should bring their own printed copy of the handouts.  NO handouts will be available at the training.
