- practice in basic message handling using your radio
- practice in logging
- answers to your questions
- additional resources
Who should take this course? Licensed ham radio operators who may volunteer for their neighborhood CERT radio communications, or would like to learn more about the role and responsibilities of the CERT ham operator role.
Where is this course being held? At home via Zoom and on the air using your ham radio.
