Amateur Radio Class For Windward Oahu

HAMs are the backbone for emergency communications during a disaster. When cell phones and landlines fail, it is the Amateur Radio operators who communicate with Emergency Management (Civil Defense).
When you have your amateur radio license, you can let the world know what support you and your neighbors need.

You do not need to be out of touch and isolated. HAM radio operators are essential to the resilience of our Windward Communities.

The test is much easier now. You do not have to know Morris Code.
