Ham Radio license class - FREE

The ever-so-popular "Ham Slam" is back!

Enjoy the exciting world of amateur "ham" radio in only one weekend of study. The Highland Lakes Amateur Radio Club is conducting a class for the technician license with the exam available right on the spot.

Ham radio encompasses an endless list of possible activities. Communications by voice, on the computer equivalent to instant messaging and email, local contacts or making friends around the state, country and the entire world. You can learn to build or repair stuff, or just buy it to plug and play. You can get deeply into the electronics involved, or not. Public service in the Amateur Radio Emergency Service is also available.

You don't have to be an electronics whiz or a nerd. Our class will make you one!

Fri Aug 23 --- 7pm - 9pm
Sat Aug 24 --- 9am - 6pm
Sun Aug 25 --- 9am - noon ... exam in the afternoon

THEN volunteer examiners are available to administer the exam and you will know that you passed when you walk out of the room! Everyone passes when they attend this course and do the work. While the course is free, taught by local hams, there is a $15 exam fee required by some Northern high-steppin' muckety-mucks.

WHERE: Herman Brown library in Burnet on the square.

More info on the Highland Lakes Amateur Radio Club website including info on how to sign up or get a study manual in advance.
