The Cambridge Amateur Radio Club is running this class for those interested in obtaining a basic license in Amateur Radio. Amateur Radio (ham radio) is a popular hobby and service that brings people, electronics and communication together. People use amateur radio to talk across town, around the world, or even into space, all without the Internet or cell phones. It's fun, social, educational, and can be a lifeline during times of need. The Cambridge Amateur Radio club has made contacts all over the world, and would like to invite you to learn more about amateur radio.
