Amateur Radio License Classes

Now you can join this hobby of 700,000 U.S. Ham Radio operators in a course that meets one night per week.  Morse code is no longer a requirement for the FCC license, but still very popular. Several other modern TechClass03communications modes including voice, data, and television are used today. Satellites, the internet, and radios are all part of the hobby now. Join the fabulous, fun hobby of Amateur Radio by registering for a class today.
