Ham Radio License Class

Several people have expressed an interest in getting an amateur radio license. I will be giving a class to help prepare for the Technician level exam, which gives privileges on 30 MHz and above. If there is interest a General class might be in the works for the future.

Tests are given here in Austin on the first and third Saturdays of the month. The Technician exam consists of a 35 question multiple-choice test that covers basic electronics, radio fundamentals, station setup, operating practices, safety, and FCC regulations. Morse code is no longer required for any class of amateur license.
