Dana Henrique [WA1KYU] will be offering another Technician Amateur Radio License in a weekend course to be taught Friday – Sunday of the 2010 Thanksgiving weekend.
Amateur Radio Class
Technician Level (Element 2)
Dates: November 26 – 28, 2010
Time: 1 – 5 PM Each day
Registration Deadline: November 12, 2010 – contact
Dana at 508-432-1383 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Location: Chatham Maritime Marconi Center
847 Orleans Road., N. Chatham, MA 02650
Duration: 3 sessions of 4 hours each
Fee: This class is offered free of charge. Instructors volunteer their time and materials – we receive no payment for our services. Donations to the organization are welcomed but not required.
Materials: You will need to purchase a copy of the ARRL Ham Radio License Manual #0830 and have it in your possession well in advance of the first class. It is available from the ARRL for $24.95. http://www.arrl.org. Call them toll free at: 1-888-277-5289.
Age: There is no specific age requirement to hold an Amateur Radio license but a certain level of ability, knowledge, and concentration are necessary to pass the test. Children 12 years and up generally do well. Itʼs possible a younger child could pass the exam given sufficient desire to do so, commitment, and ability to learn.
Parents: Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. You will be expected to attend the classes with your child so plan on making this an activity you do together. No parent/guardian, no class, no exceptions.
Before attending the first session, the student will be expected to have read and memorized the questions in Chapters 1, 6, 7, and 8 of the Ham Radio License Manual. These chapters are: “Welcome to Amateur Radio”, “Communicating with Other Hams”, “Licensing Regulations”, and “Operating Regulations”. Class time wonʼt be devoted to these topics, other than to answer specific questions someone may have at the start of the first class. You will need to know this material in order to pass the license exam which immediately follows the last class.
