Want To Become a Ham?
If you're not a licensed amateur but always dreamed of becoming one (or if the idea just occurred to you five minutes ago), getting your license is easy and fun. Well hold training classes for all levels of amateur license. Check our ARES Training and Certification section for dates and times of classes. There are also any number of sources of information on the web to get you started. One of the best is the American Radio Relay League's Get On the Air web page. Check it out.
