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.

Would you like to

become an amateur

radio 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.
