HAM Radio Class Offered Free of Charge

An Amateur Radio (Ham Radio) operator class offered to the community will begin on Saturday, February 2, 2013, at the Davie Police Department located at 1230 South Nob Hill Road. The free classes will be held on four successive Saturday mornings, from 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. The material taught and learned in the class will enable the student to obtain the Amateur Technician Class license issued by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). A test (free of charge) will be offered on February 23, the final day of class.

What do ham radio operators do? The number of activities enjoyed by hams is nearly limitless. For example:

  • ·         Talk to people on the radio living as close as your own neighborhood or as far away as the other side of the world.
  • ·         Participate in local, state, and world-wide contests.
  • ·         Help with communications during local events.
  • ·         Assist with vital communications during periods of disaster when land lines and cell phones go out-of-service.

 

This is not CB radio. The Amateur Radio Service is regulated by the Federal Communications Commission and licensing is required. Given the privileges enjoyed by amateurs, testing and licensing ensures that people operate correctly and within the rules that govern amateur radio.

 Anyone can be licensed as an amateur, as long as you are not an official representative of a foreign government. There is no age restriction (there are many teenagers who are hams), and there is no cost for the course. You do not even need to own a radio. All you will need is a basic calculator and, although not mandatory but highly recommended, a book called The ARRL Ham Radio License Manual, 2nd Edition. This book can be obtained locally from Mike’s Electronics located at 1069 N.W. 53rd Street in Ft. Lauderdale, phone 954-491-7110. Make sure it is the newest edition, valid from July 1, 2010 to June 30, 2014. The older manual is no longer valid for the current question pool. Various sources on the internet like www.Amazon.com and http://www.arrl.org/ also provide this manual. To learn more about the world of Amateur radio: http://www.hello-radio.org/

We join together in seeking peace and well-being for our cities, encouraging everyone to reach their God-given potential in vocation, family, and community.

In order to be faithful stewards of this prayer breakfast, we ask that you submit your commitments to attend (along with payment) as soon as possible. We need to receive registration and payment by April 27th. Please help us by responding early.
