The Kalamazoo Amateur Radio Club will once again be conducting classes for the entry level (Technician) license into the Amateur Radio Service (or “Ham” Radio!), as well as a General Class License course for those wishing to upgrade!.
“The Amateur and Amateur-satellite services are for qualified persons of any age who are interested in radio technique solely with a personal aim and without pecuniary interest. These services present an opportunity for self-training, intercommunication, and technical investigations.” (FCC Amateur Radio Service Home Page)
