Seguin Ham Radio Class – September 19th 2015


The Chaparral Amateur Radio Club is offering a technician-level license class September 19 and 26 (2015) at the office of Guadalupe County Emergency Management Office, 415 East Donegan Street in Seguin. It will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. A license exam will be given before the end of class on September 26th.

This is an intense two-day course that covers all of the material necessary to pass the exam to obtain a Federal Communications Commission Amateur Radio Technician class license.

Participants will need a “Technician Class Manual” (2014-2018) by Gordon West, available from for $21.95.

There is no Morse code requirement for this license.

The technician class license is the entry-level license of choice for most new ham radio operators.

The license gives access to all amateur radio frequencies above 30 megahertz, allowing these licensees the ability to communicate locally and most often within North America. It also allows for some limited privileges on the HF (also called “short wave”) bands used for international communications.
