Questioning what to do next after getting a license? Or are you a new or experienced Amatuer Radio Operator looking to expand into new activities with radio or increase your radio knowledge? If so, you might be interested in the following free weekly Operating Classes. See description and registration information below.
Free weekly 3-hour Zoom sessions providing info on a wide range of Amateur Radio operating activities will start on Thursday March 30 and run through June 15 at 12:30 PM Hawaii time (6:30 PM Eastern time). Each session is independent, so you can attend all or just selected sessions. Previous attendees are welcome.
Every subject is taught by a ham who is a well known subject matter expert.
A detailed syllabus will be published before classes begin. Attend them all, or any that you like. They will be recorded so if you miss one or if the time is inconvenient, you can watch it whenever you have time.
You must register for the classes.
