Our member Sheryl Starr offers:
Get your FCC Technician Ham Radio License.
Not only useful in conjunction with UAVs (used for some FPV video fréquences especially mini-Quad racing inside metal constructed buildings like our Kearny Point location), but you can also be helpful in an emergency within our area..
You can get the training you need at no charge by ARCsquared in Fairfield and the FCC fee is only $15 to take the test, which you'll do on the Sunday after the training.
ARCSquared (stands for American Red Cross Amateur Radio Club), an organization of volunteers and staff that provides communications during a disaster. The radios can communicate among themselves throughout our region, with the DOC in Fairfield, and with ham radios located in the other chapter location, as well as portable stations that will be established in shelters, interview sites and service centers. And they can communicate with others providing disaster response, including OEMS, and with ham radio operators everywhere.
Specifics regarding the class:-
· The class runs all day Saturday and Sunday from 8am to 5pm (you must attend both days) with the test at approximately 1pm on Sunday.
· ARCSquared supplies the instructor and the people to give the exam and light refreshments. In addition, we take a break for lunch at around 12pm and the test takers can either bring a sandwich or go out to one of the local delis or restaurants.
· Costs:- The FCC charges $15 for the test. We recommend that the students buy a book – ($18-$20).
