Learn How to Become a Licensed HAM Radio Operator (Session 2 of 2)
September 30, 2017 @ 9:00 AM - 5:00 PMFree
The Beacon Emergency Action Network is excited to be officially offering Beacon Hill and South Seattle community residents an opportunity to become licensed ham radio operators!
Modern ham radio is easy to learn. 90% of class participants are able to pass the exam and obtain their licenses. Devices are now more simple and affordable than ever before.
Classes will run for two consecutive Saturdays, September 23 and September 30, from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. both days at Jefferson Community Center. A group of highly qualified local instructors from the National Association for Amateur Radio will provide training. There is a $15 licensing fee when you take the final test on the last day of class.
During the first class, participants will be given lots of information on available radios so they can make purchasing decisions and obtain their devices if necessary for the second class.
