Amateur Radio Technician FCC Licensing (level 1) Class
sponsored by the West Seattle Amateur Radio Club, W7AW
Below is information on the upcoming class for the entry level FCC Amateur Radio license. Class size will be limited to 22 for better instructor-student interaction, so applicants should register early online at:
Ham radio is a great hobby and a great way to serve the community. One can communicate locally, around the world or even via satellite. It provides an excellent means of emergency communication. Your license never expires as long as you renew every 10 years (no need for another exam). This is to be a fun, low-key, learning experience and class participation and asking questions is encouraged. However, instructors will not call on individual students during class so that you can feel free to participate at your comfort level. Conceptual materials will be presented during the first weekend so that you can study efficiently during the following week. Practical scenarios and demonstrations will be presented on the next Saturday. A review session will be offered on the final Sunday. Note that a General Class (level 2) course is being given immediately after this class. You may register for both.
