BECOME AN AMATEUR RADIO OPERATOR (HAM)

 

Becoming a ham is easier than you think!

Now that the morse code requirement has been dropped for all license classes the hobby has seen considerable growth.  In the U.S. there were over 970,000 licensed amateurs at the end of 2010.

We are here to help you join the ranks.

The first license level is Technician.  There is one test to take that consists of 35 multiple choice question taken from the Element 2 question pool.  The club has study material that can be borrowed, and if there is enough interest classes can be set up.

Once you are ready our club has a W5YI testing team that can administer the test.  Our VE (Volunteer Examiner Coordinator) information:
