"Try Ham Radio Day," sponsored by Edmond Amateur Radio Society, will be held

this Saturday September 10, 2011 from 9:00 a.m. to noon. The event is free

and will be held at Edmond North High School, in the south parking lot at

215 W. Danforth in Edmond. 


Club members will set up and operate a ham radio station. The public is

invited to stop in and check out ham radio and we'll put them on the air.

All is free without any obligations. 


Club members will be on hand operating the radio making contacts across the

country and the world, others will be available to explain how operations

are conducted and get visitors up to speed with a brief introduction to ham

radio and then put them on the air.


For those who find ham radio interesting, the Edmond Amateur Radio Society

has scheduled entry level license (Technician) class beginning September

20th at 6:30 p.m. at the EARS station, Main and Littler in downtown Edmond.

Cost for the class is $40 which includes text and test (a $40 value).
