HAM Radio Class & Exam Session Offered by Norm, Naomi, and Brian Goodkin

When Hurricane Sandy struck the Eastern seaboard of the United States, it caused an unfathomable amount of damage to the infrastructure.

Homes were without power for weeks, and communications were severely disrupted. Some who found themselves in trouble were unable to contact the emergency services to summon assistance.

But one thing that the hurricane wasn’t able to disrupt was radio broadcasts. It is for this reason ham radio operators were so vital in keeping people safe during the worst of the storm.

Any licensed amateur radio operator can join groups tasked with assisting during emergency situations. One of the largest is the Amateur Radio Emergency Service, which operates in Canada and the United States.

You can’t just buy a radio set and become an amateur radio operator. Not legally, at least. Before you can start transmitting across the airwaves, you’ve got to get yourself certified and licensed.

So come to the class on October 21st (9:00a.m. to 4:00p.m.) and take the exam to get your ham radio license. The class is fun and the Goodkins make it easy to pass!

The cost is $75.00 per person and includes the exam fee, coffee, pastry and hot lunch.

Pay online via PayPal or Credit Card at: PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR NAME, AGE, EMAIL AND PHONE.
