The Albemarle Amateur Radio Club is offering a class to train students for the Technician Class amateur radio (ham) license. This class will cover topics such as electronics, radio wave propagation, antenna design, frequency use in the US, and proper radio etiquette. Though there are no formal requirements, it is most suitable for people willing to learn, aged from high school to adult. All are welcome.
The class will be held on Zoom on 10 consecutive Wednesdays, beginning on Wednesday August 26th at 7pm Eastern time. There is no charge for the course, but students will need a copy of the ARRL Ham Radio License Manual (Fourth Edition), which can be ordered from the ARRL (http://www.arrl.org/shop/ARRL-Ham-Radio-License-Manual-4th-Edition-Softcover/) or Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/ARRL-Radio-License-Manual-softover/dp/162595087X/).
At the conclusion of the course, we will hold a license examination (VE) session that, if passed, will result in the student receiving a Technician’s license. We also will provide guidance on what to do after you obtain your FCC license.
You may register by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Make certain that you use “Tech course” in the subject line of your message. A course outline, reading assignment sheet, and Zoom link will be provided to those who register.
