Club schedules amateur radio classJanuary 27, 2020
The Patoka Valley Amateur Radio Club is offering a series of six weekly classes for people that want to earn the Technician Class amateur radio license.
Classes meet from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays, March 4 through April 15, at the Huntingburg Public Library, 419 N. Jackson St.
This license is the first of three licenses available to ham radio operators, and the privileges include the use of portable and mobile radios, local repeaters (including some that permit world-wide contacts) and satellite communication. Some limited access to the high frequency bands also provides an introduction to national and global communication.
The class focuses on passing the Technician Class FCC license test, a multiple choice test with no Morse Code requirement. The week after the last class will be a testing session which provides the students the opportunity to take the FCC license test and obtain their Technician Class license. The class is taught by experienced ham radio operators.
There is no fee for this class. Participants must provide their own textbook, “Ham Radio License Manual by the American Radio Relay League. The textbook is available at www.amazon.com.
A $15 fee is charged to take the ARRL Volunteer Examination license exam at course completion.
