In Person Courses
Amateur Radio Basic Classes – Coming Soon!
The Charlottetown Amateur Radio Club is preparing to deliver in-person classes for the Basic Qualification license. We will teach all of the elements required to successfully pass the license examination.
UPDATE: April 6th, 2022 – We will be sending out a notice over the next number of weeks for a free introductory class for Amateur radio to which all looking to get their license can attend. We will go over some basics of Amateur radio and decide on dates and times to continue the more formal classes towards licensing.\
ONLINE: An Online Basic Amateur Radio Course is available that the Halifax ARC and Annapolis Valley ARC use. It was developed by Al Penney VO1NO with input from several Canadian Clubs
We expect the cost of this course will be around $100 per person, and will include the study guide (approximately a $50 value). Exams will be run at the end of the course, at no extra charge. Main topics covered will be:
- Regulations and Policies
- Operating and Procedures
- Station Assembly, Practice and Safety
- Circuit Components
- Basic Electronics and Theory
- Feedlines and Antenna Systems
- Radio Wave Propagation, and
- Interference and Suppression
There are no age limits or prerequisites for the course. We recommend that students come with a basic understanding of mathematics.
We are looking at two options for delivering the course:
- A series of Saturdays from 9am to 3pm (with a lunch break), lasting four to five weeks
- Evening classes, once per week from 7pm to 9pm, lasting three to four months
When responding, please state your preference. Hope to see you soon!

This is meant to compliment your Amateur Radio license or simply to allow you to learn something new. No specific certification is provided at the end however after the course the club may do a weekly or monthly HF net using Morse code for the purpose of keeping up skills and knowledge.
The format and date is yet to be determined but will depend on interest. Sign up below to get on the list to be notified when we will be running the course and a preference as to class times.
