Become a Ham!

Amateur radio is a hobby which requires a license issued by the FCC. Study material is available in book form (paper or e-book), flashcards, apps, interactive web sites and more. The license requires passing a multiple choice exam which is offered by volunteers all around the country.

Here in Columbus, the exams are held periodically on Saturday mornings at 10:00AM.

We are more than happy to answer your questions about the hobby and to help you get started. Send an email to the address below.

We would love for you to attend our monthly club meetings, ARRL Field Day in June, Winter Field Day in January, and any other event we have scheduled.

We have an email reflector on, a calendar here on this site, plus we’re on Twitter and Facebook.
