Technician

People get involved with amateur radio for all sorts of reasons.  It is a magnificently diverse endeavor with a lot of opportunities.  It can be a fun technical hobby, a way to provide community service, or an important facet of family emergency preparedness.  To become an amateur radio operator you must obtain a license from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).  The FCC is the federal governing body overseeing the Amateur Radio Service, known colloquially as “ham” radio.  The FCC currently issues three different amateur radio license levels, or classes: (1) Technician License Class, (2) General License Class, and (3) Extra License Class. The Technician License Class is the introductory level license and it must be earned first. The introductory Technician Class license offers a fantastic set of frequency capabilities right from the git-go.
