2016 Amateur Radio License Classes

 

 

 

 

Amateur radio offers opportunities for fun, education, and public service.  You need a license from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to transmit.  The license allows you use a wide variety of frequency bands that provide different communication options.  After tornados and hurricanes, amateur radio operators (also called hams) often provide communications for their community until phone and other services are restored.

 

In 2016, we will be offering both "open" and "YL only" classes. For more information, click here.

 


 

 

Elmers?

Do you need help with your HAM station, tower, or other equipment? Do you need assistance with getting on the air? Do you need help with _____ (fill in the blank)?

Click here to see a list of CCARC "Elmers" (Amateur Radio operators who are willing to "mentor" and assist in any way they can!)
