If you’ve ever wanted to learn about amateur (“ham”) radio, it’s time to do something about it! This class gives you everything you need to sit for the written examination for an FCC Technician class amateur radio license. Here are just a few of the things you can do with this license - • Talk with other hams all over the world • Operate your own ham radio position-reporting system (APRS) • Communicate with satellites and the International Space Station (ISS) • Send and receive digital communications through your computer • Operate through local repeater systems • Operate ham radio television and computer radio photos (ATV and SSTV) • Perform community service as a ham radio responder On the last evening, you will take the FCC exam - if you pass, you will leave as a licensed ham radio operator! No prior experience is needed.
