The Halifax Amateur Radio Club will be beginning their Basic License course starting this evening.

Anyone who may have worked with operators at rally events over the summer, or might have an interest to learn more is directed to the below add:

I had a couple people ask about Amateur Radio on the weekend.

Please feel free to ask any questions here, I'll do my best to answer.

Great second hobby, and when it comes to Rallying, or anything else that gets you lost in the woods, great backup to a cell phone. I've usually got a small handheld in my pannier if I'm off on the trail bike.

The Halifax Amateur Radio Club runs a course one a year, usually starts in Sept. I'll update more as we get closer.

Cheers!

An interest has been expressed on the weekend regarding Amateur "Ham" Radio.

I'll try and location some links and words that describe to most what the hobby is about, what the education process is like, so on and so forth.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amateur_radio

We'll start with the basic Wiki. There are many many aspects to the hobby, and they are of a varying level of knowledge and
involvement.

I suspect most here are interested in the ability to communicate, and use frequency spectrum that would allow better communication during events. The big advantage to Ham Radio of course, is the ability to use repeaters located throughout the province. This increases the ability to communication over longer distances greatly.
