Ham radio lessons
« on: January 11, 2019, 03:47:48 PM »
My apologies I forgot to post this earlier but there is a ham radio class tomorrow starting at 9am for those interested.

Amateur Radio License Class

 

Date: Saturday January 12, 2019 9:00am – 1:00pm (Just one week away!)

 

Place: Rocky Mountain College Library Building, 1511 Poly Drive Billings, MT 59102
(Enter from17th Street, drive east on Permit Park till it dead-ends in parking lot, Enter building directly adjacent to parking lot, with Trojan Horse Sculpture at doorway.)

 

This is the highly-successful class that will lead you to your first Amateur Radio license.

 

Costs: The license class is FREE.

The FCC Exam fee is $15.

 

Here’s the process:

Attend the license class at the RMC Library on the date and time above
Study at home the next week (we recommend one hour/day)
Take the FCC Exam here in Billings on Saturday, January 19, 2019, 10:00 am at Rocky Mountain College (same location of class on January 12!)
Attend “New Ham Night” on Wednesday, Wednesday January 30, 2019, 6:00-9:00 pm at the United Way of Yellowstone County at 2173 Overland Avenue in Billings and enjoy your Ham Radio License the rest of your life!
 

Added Bonus: when you obtain your Ham Radio License, the Yellowstone Radio Club grants you free membership for one year in the local club! (a $25 Value!)

 

What can you do with your Ham Radio License?

 

Operate a base station, mobile radio, or handheld radio
Communicate with other ham radio operators around the world
Communicate through satellites, including talking directly with the astronauts on the International Space Station
Conduct computer-to-computer Live Chat conversations with other hams – with no wires, no cellphones, no WiFi, and no internet between you
Provide Health and Safety radio communications for local community events like Peaks-to-Prairie, Montana Marathon, and several others
Provide emergency radio communications in times of disaster to help your family and neighbors
 

Plus, if you are currently a student:

Volunteer Activities look very good on college applications (required for many schools and scholarships)
Obtaining an FCC Ham Radio License looks really good on a job application
The activities and technology of Ham Radio can lead to a career in electronics or communications
