Course Description

Course HAM Radio Certification Preparedness Class (L-128)

Amateur Radio operators, often called "hams," are licensed by governments around the world to use specific ranges of radio frequencies. The entry-level license in the United States, the Technician class, is all that is necessary for local routine and emergency communications. To obtain this license, you need only pass a 35-question multiple-choice written licensing exam for which all the possible questions and their answers are public information. You need not be a US citizen, though you must have valid photo identification, and there is no lower or upper age limit.

This course will help prepare you for the examination so that you can get your HAM Radio license.
