Ham Class – Starts Oct 24th

Would you like to get YOUR Amateur Radio License?

Have you thought about the hobby of “Ham” Radio, but weren’t sure where to start? Perhaps you think that it’s just too hard to learn, or that the test is expensive, or that you have to know that dit-dah stuff; y’know, Morse Code. Well, here’s where we can help!

Atascosa County Amateur Radio Club wants to help bring more people into the “Ham” Radio community. We are gearing up to offer classes for the Technician Class License, the first license that a person earns to become an Amateur Radio Operator.

The four class sessions will cover FCC Rules Part 97 (the rules which govern Amateur Radio), Radio Theory, Electronics Theory, and Operator protocol. None of this is difficult; there are “Hams” out there who’ve gotten their license as young as eight years old! Oh, and by the way, as of 2007 Morse Code is no longer a requirement for any Amateur Radio License!

Class dates: October 24, 31, November 7, 14. Licensing exam at the last class
Times: 10 am to 3 pm (hour lunch at 12 noon).
Location: Atascosa County Emergency Operations Center (the old jail), Jourdanton, TX

To register or for more information call: Hugo South, KK5BZ, at 830-281-2408. All interested parties are requested to pre-register No later than October 17. Currently licensed Amateur Radio Operators are welcome to audit the class with pre-registration.
