HAM Radio Training – Technician License (Course Time 24hrs) Join the ADRN HAM Radio team by taking the beginner course for a HAM Radio Technician license. Why HAM radio? In a disaster, often other modes of communication (cell phones, landlines, etc.) become overwhelmed and become unavailable. In a disaster (such as the Bastrop Fire), government agencies have the ability to devote existing communications service to Government Emergency Telecommunications Service use. That means 90% of the system is locked out from general use. HAM radio is the link that keeps ADRN teams in contact with the call center, and provides a way for victims to get word to families out of the area. The Technician Class license allows operator privileges on both VHF and UHF repeaters located throughout the Greater Austin Area. Also, Morse Code is no longer required to pass the exam! HAM radio is fun and can be a powerful tool for the Body of Christ to help those in need in times of disaster
