Learn Ham Radio in new class series

Ham radioThe Newcastle Public Library presents another installment of its series “Learning Ham Radio,” beginning at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 1, and continuing at that time on Tuesdays and Thursdays through Tuesday, Feb. 27.

Each class takes place at the library and either teens or adults are invited to participate.

Attendees will learn the basics of ham radio in preparation for being able to take the test at the end of the course to apply for their own license. Expert operators and instructors will lead the classes.

The series follows a successful run last fall in which several participants were able to earn their Ham Radio license.

Refreshments for each session of the series will be provided thanks to the Friends of the Newcastle Library.

Registration in advance is required.
