The Medic: An Introduction to HAM Radio
**Due to the pandemic, this workshop material will be offered online, and can also be downloaded!
The process to gain certification for operating HAM radio is easy, but for those not familiar with the radio protocol, it’s hard to know where to begin. This practice session is to help medics interested in gaining their HAM license and setting up a network for post-disaster, community outreach or working in austere locales.
We will cover:
- HAM radio teaching resources for getting your license
- Where and how to take the test
- The overall principles of HAM radio
- HAM radio organizations
- **organizations that emphasize post disaster/disaster relief
- Frequency ranges
- Levels of certification
