Amateur Radio, often called ham radio, has consistently been the most reliable means of communications in emergencies when other systems failed or were overloaded. Despite the development of very complex systems--or maybe because they are so complex--ham radio has been called into action again and again to provide communications when it really matters.

Unlike some other types of radio services, you need an FCC license to communicate with a ham radio. There are three levels of Amateur Radio Licenses, and getting your first one is not all that hard. Many people pass their FCC exam in a week of spare time and the Fulton County Amateur Radio Club would like to help you.

The Fulton County Amateur Radio Club is offering a two day entry level Technician class, followed by an ARRL VEC Testing session. The two day class takes place on September 10th and 17th at the Delta Public Library from 10:00am until 2:00pm both days, with testing at the end of the second Saturday. The club is providing all study materials for the class, however we are limited to five participants. The only cost is the testing session fee which is $15.00 required by the FCC.
