Come and join BCARS for a completely free amateur radio workshop. Our workshop introduces beginners to the world of amateur radio. Attendees will learn what amateur or “ham” radio is, how to get licensed, and receive hands on training using actual radios on the air. Whether you just curious about the hobby or if you have been an operator for a while, this is a great opportunity to learn. If you have a radio already, bring it along. You can practice on your own radio, using our antenna or your own.
