Amateur (Ham) Radio Study Class — Come and learn the exciting world of Amateur Radio. Did you know that with an FCC Amateur Radio License you can talk to astronauts in the International Space Station (ISS) or use a satellite in orbit and a handheld radio to speak with someone here on Earth many states away? How about sending up a transmitter on helium balloon and tracking its beacon all around the world? Getting your Technician Class license gives you a license to learn, create, and build amazing projects, while also learning how technology you use everyday actually works. Please join the Wilmington Public Library and the Clinton County Amateur Radio Association (CCARA) in this six-week course on Sundays from March 27 to May 15. Upon completion of this course, you will be prepared to test for, and pass your first Amateur Radio License.

Field Day 2022

KC2VFX Back Yard 1020 Farmers Rd, Wilmington, OH

Field Day is ham radio's open house. Every June, more than 40,000 hams throughout North America set up temporary transmitting stations in public places to demonstrate ham radio's science, skill and service to our communities and our nation. It combines public service, emergency preparedness, community outreach, and technical skills all in a single event. Field Day has been an annual event since 1933, and remains the most popular event in ham radio.
