What is HRT? Ham Radio Technician is the first level in the license levels issued by the FCC. This license is your Introduction into ham radio and all of its many resources The Technician License is the “License to learn”. Our HRT course is taught over 20 hours of classroom session times. During these sessions we will walk you through the full question pool used for the Technician test. In these classes we cover the topics of Basic Radio Operation, how the radio signal works, Antenna designs and uses, and the new digital sections of ham radio.


Why do I need Ham Radio in my life? “When All Else Fails, Ham Radio” This is the phrase used in Ham Radio in relation to disasters. Communications like Cell Phones may become overwhelmed or even shut down due to lack of power. Ham Radio does not rely on towers to operate, and it can also be used on batteries or solar energy. In addition to operating during disasters you can also use for personal recreation. Imagine being able to talk around the world without paying for the minutes.


I don’t have any Technological experience, how easy is this class? This course starts at the beginning, if you can read and write, you have enough experience to take this course.


Please Sign up for this life saving course, communication is the #1 resource needed during any disaster!
