HSHRC Ham Radio License: Everything you need to get on the air
We strongly encourage anyone who joins the HSHRC to become a licensed Ham radio operator so you can use our communication services and enjoy the wonderful world of ham radio. Some folks might consider ham radio to be old timey or something that is not necessary anymore. Nothing could be further from the truth. In emergency situations, like recent hurricanes and even 9/11, it is ham radio operators that provide critical emergency communication operations.
In addition, with the advent of the Internet, there are many new and exciting technologies emerging that bring ham radio technology into the world of high tech. From voice synthesizers, to controlling remote repeaters through the Internet, to connecting geographically separated repeaters through the Internet, the possibilities are endless.
Everything that you need to know about getting your ham radio license is located The FCC Amateur Radio Service.
It is now easier than ever to become a ham radio operator. All you need is your Technician license in order to communicate on the two meter band which is where we communicate locally in Nashville and Middle Tennessee. It's a great first step, and the exam is really pretty easy to prepare for and to take.
