Encouraging Amateur Radio Operators

All   around   the   world,   governments   have   allocated   portions   of   the   radio frequency   spectrum   for   use   by   licensed   amateur   radio   operators.      These operators,     sometimes     known     by     their     nickname     of     ‘Ham     Radio’ operators,   explore,   experiment   with,   and   enjoy   the   ability   of   radio   waves of    varying    wavelengths,    to    permit    communication    across    distances without wires. Port     Stephens     Amateur     Radio     Club     exists     for     the     purpose     of encouraging      amateur   radio   operators   within   its   region   to   enjoy   their hobby,   and   to   advance   through   the   various   levels   of   licensing   in   order   to develop   a   greater   knowledge   and   ability.   Meetings   alternate   between business     meetings     and     practical     meetings,     but     a     great     deal     of knowledge    is    exchanged    through    the    informal    conversations    over    a ‘cuppa’ around the tables after every meeting.

operator?

If   you   would   like   to   explore   amateur   radio   as a   hobby,   you   are   welcome   to   come   to   the meetings     and     let     people     know     of     your interest.     Before     you     can     key     your     first transmission,     you     must     obtain     a     licence from    the    Australian    Communications    and Media     Authority     (ACMA).          To     receive     a license   you   must   pass   an   exam,   but   this   is not   nearly   so   hard   as   it   might   seem.   There are    three    levels    of    licence,    and    the    entry level is relatively easy. Port     Stephens     Amateur     Radio     Club     has amongst      its      members      those      who      are qualified    to    supervise    exams    at    all    three levels.   So   when   you   feel   ready,   you   can   sit for an exam at the club meeting site.    For   more   information   about   licensing,   click on   the   “More   Info”   button   below   to   take   you to    the    website    of    the    Wireless    Institute    of Australia.     (Simply     close     that     window     to return here.)
