Ham Radio 101 11-18 years / Wed 3:30-4:30pm
Ham, or amateur radio, is a fun and social way to build knowledge of basic electronics, wave science, radio art and more. Entry level ham operator licenses are granted under FCC rule and open up a wide world of communications possibilities which can be a great personal and family hobby as well as lifesaving in emergency situations.
The goal of this class is to prepare students to pass the Ham Technician license exam which grants the right to transmit on Ham Radio frequencies. Youth who are currently licensed will be available during the class to help prepare and answer questions. In addition, we plan to host a live time on the radio for students to listen in as ham operators talk about some of the exam questions and share what it’s like to be a Ham Operator. Parents are highly encouraged to attend and sign up to take the exam with their students. Whether to be prepared for alternate means of communication if needed, or just to learn more about the radio art and become an active participant, come take this class and get licensed!
Costs to become a licensed Ham Operator may include: AARL exam fee - $15. A basic inexpensive handheld ham radio may be purchased on Amazon for under $50-$80. AARL test manual is $32 (optional), and/or a free app which is a great study guide and test prep!
