Event Details

Link to register:

The nickname “Ham Radio” refers to the non-commercial radio frequencies (bands) that are designated by the FCC for public & civic use.  This three day Ham Radio Technician Course will prepare you to take the FCC exam, which will be given on the final day of class.

  • Ham radio is an important communications back-up during disasters and emergencies in the event that Local Area Networks (LAN) including cell phones may be rendered inoperable.
  • During tornado season, monitor storm spotter reports (SKYWARN) in real-time in coordination with the National Weather Service.
  • Other than the initial cost of the equipment (for as little as $50 or less for some hand-held portable radios that are on the market), there is no cost to use ham radio frequencies.
  • With a radio operator’s license you can volunteer for many different agencies for either emergency response or provide support for community events:  RACES, ARES, CERT, MRC, American Red Cross and many more!

The course is free! NCTTRAC will provide the book! Feel free to stop by the NCTTRAC offices to pick up your book to allow additional study time.  There is a $15.00 FCC Exam fee. Please bring cash to the training to pay your exam fee.
