The Cherokee County Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) has been offering free ham radio license classes. These classes will prepare you to take the Technician exam, which is the first step in amateur radio. From here you can branch out to many other aspects of amateur radio including emergency communications, talking with others in distant places, radio sport competitions, SKYWARN and much more. The required text is the ARRL Ham Radio License Manual, 3rd Edition
For more information on the classes, ARES or amateur radio in general, contact Jim Howard (W4SDJ) at (828) 837-3630 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
