UPCOMING EVENTS

AMATEUR [HAM] RADIO CERTIFICATION COURSES

 Amateur radio brings people, electronics and communication together. People use ham radio to talk across town and around the world, all without the Internet or cell phones. It's fun, social, educational, and can be a lifeline during times of need. Having more certified amateur radio operators in Campbell River and throughout the regional district will greatly increase our community’s emergency communications capability. Attending all class dates is encouraged, but not mandatory. Some knowledge of electricity or electronics is helpful, but not essential. Certificates are awarded upon passing the basic exam and are good for life.  Once you achieve your certification the Campbell River Amateur Radio Society and Campbell River Emergency Communications Team exist to help new hams develop their skillset further.
