The Whidbey Ham Radio Club is offering an entry level ham radio FCC license course.

The Island County Amateur Radio Club, or ICARC, is sponsoring a two-day entry-level licensing course to prepare participants to obtain their technician class amateur radio license.

The course requires no previous experience. The course is scheduled for 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 2 and Feb. 9 in the Island County Commissioner’s Hearing Rooms B101 and B102, basement at 1 N.E. 6th St., Coupeville.

With a technician license, amateur radio operators have full access to all amateur activities in the world above 50 MHz, including public service, emergency communications, digital operations, satellite communications, and simply talking to other amateurs around town.

It is now possible to talk to amateurs around the world from the living room with a simple hand-held transceiver.

Cost of the course is $30 per person, including manual. If you have the current “ARRL Ham Radio License Manual,” fourth edition, the class cost is $5.

Pre-registration is desired. For information or to pre-register, email to Ken Sousa at n7axj@w7avm.org

FCC technician license testing will be offered at the end of the course. Cost of the test is $15.
