Course Description and Information

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 (which will take place at the NCTTRAC Office) will prepare you to take the FCC exam, which will be administered on Saturday, April 1, 2023, at 9:00 AM at the City of Arlington Building located at 401 West Sanford, Arlington, 76011.

  • Ham radio is an important communications backup 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!
