Amateur Radio Basic Classes – Starting September 2023!
UPDATED: August 31st, 2023
The fall course starts September 11th through November 6th
Please note that you don’t have to attend the course if you prefer to self study and simply write the test, feel free to indicate that as well and we can match you up with an instructor to facilitate the written test.
We will be using the COAX Publications Basic Amateur Study Guide, which you are free to purchase directly from the publisher, or you can buy it from the club at our anticipated rate of $50 per book. Purchasing from the club saves shipping costs, and will be roughly $15 cheaper for you.
Tuition will be $50 for most students. Red Cross staff/volunteers will have a reduced tuition arrangement in recognition of the CRC hosting our classes. Please let us know if you are a Red Cross-affiliated person. That tuition includes a one-year membership in the Charlottetown Amateur Radio Club (a $20-$30 value).
At the end of the course, examinations will be offered for all students. Exams are free. The pass mark is 70%, and an honours designation is available at 80%, which adds extra on-air privileges.
- The cost will be $100 which includes the purchase of the study guide
- 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
