Become a Ham
Being a ham is all about learning, sharing, being there when your family, community, and nation need you most!
Hams perform an invaluable service in all phases of public service and special events.
Imagine talking to far off lands, and even the International Space Station! It’s fun and helps make the world a better and safer place for us all!
When all else fails, amateur radio will always get you through!
