Ten New Hams

We just completed our first 2-day Technician level class and out of 13 students, we would like to welcome 10 new amateur radio operators. We hope they enjoy their new privileges and become active in their communities.

One of the guest presenters in the class was Cathy Goodrich KK4IWN. She spoke about the Community Emergency Response Team and important emergency preparedness tips. A PDF copy of her presentation along with the YouTube video she showed is included here.

The video shows an interview with Gary Pearce KN4AQ. A recording follows of an emergency communication that passed between several ham radio operators. The message requested law enforcement help for New Orléans Memorial Hospital during Hurricane Katrina.

    I wanted to take a moment and say thanks for the teachers and club members for such a wonderful few days. The test was very good hands on studying with other people helped me out a great deal. I would recommend anyone wanting to study for the ham to sign up for this class it’s well worth the time and effort to anyone interested in ham radio’s…

    Thanks again Charles
