How to Get Your Amateur Radio License in Broken Arrow


Broken Arrow Emergency Management, in association with the Broken Arrow Police Department, will be sponsoring an Amateur Radio licensing class. The class, taught by volunteer instructors affiliated with the American Radio Relay League (ARRL), will start on Wednesday, 7 June 2017 from 6:00 until 9:30 in the evening, and meet each Wednesday at the same time for approximately eight weeks. Classes will be held at the Broken Arrow Public Safety Complex, located at 1101 N. 6th St (Lynn Lane and 71st Street) in Broken Arrow.

The principal instructors are all members of the Broken Arrow Emergency Management Amateur Radio Club, or the Broken Arrow Amateur Radio Club, and hold Extra Class Amateur Radio licenses. The class will cover the material necessary to obtain the initial Amateur Radio license, the Technician class, and requires very little prior knowledge of electronics or radio theory. At the end of the class, the FCC licensing examination will be offered for anyone who chooses to take it. There is no fee for the class. Books will be available for those who wish to purchase them for approximately $25.00. The text will be the licensing manual published by the ARRL. There is also a $15.00 examination fee for the licensing exam. Come join us and get an introduction to the world of Amateur Radio, get your “ticket” and get involved in this rewarding activity.
