Amateur Radio Forum

October 1, 2019 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Jerry Horton

Are you interested in amateur radio?  Have you always wanted to get your ham license?  If you are already a ham, do you want to get back on the air and/or upgrade your license?

The Nantucket Amateur Radio Association will hold a series of informal seminars on various aspects of ham radio.  These seminars will acquaint newcomers to the exciting world of amateur radio.  For current license holders these seminars will refresh and add to their understanding of amateur radio fundamentals, equipment, and practices.  Each seminar opens with a presentation on a focus topic followed by a Q&A session, then continues with a review of questions from FCC licensing exams.  A round-table discussion wraps up each seminar.

These seminars will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Nantucket Atheneum in the downstairs learning lab.  These seminars are free and open to the public, young and old alike.
