The Club meets at the Oswego County Building, 200 North Second Street (Route 481), across from Mimi's Restaurant, in Fulton, NY. Take the elevator to the lower level.
Keith Conroy, WB2NVY, will offer a program entitled "Emergency Traffic: TITANIC!"
Starting on Monday, February 25th, the Fulton Amateur Radio Club will host a 10-week course designed for Technician Class licensees who are interested in obtaining their General Class Amateur (Ham) Radio license.
The class will meet on Monday evenings at 7:00 pm in the lower level of the Oswego County Office Building, across from Mimi's Restaurant, Route 481 North, Fulton, NY. Class dates: February 25, March 4, 11, 18, 25, April 1, 8, 15, 22. The exam will be administered on Monday, April 29.
There are many reasons to upgrade. General Class licensees have access to many more frequencies, some of which allow for around-the-world wireless communication without the need for intermediate infrastructure (such as the internet, cell towers, etc.). More communications modes and new technical opportunities are also available.
The course material resembles that which was covered in the Technician exam, with more in-depth focus on high frequency (HF) operation and advanced operating modes. Topics will include operating effectively using single sideband (SSB) on HF, digital modes, solar effects on HF propagation, test instruments, practical electronic circuits, and antennas.
For more information contact Redd Swindells, AI2N, at [email protected]. Potential students are requested to preregister to assure proper course resource preparation.

The Fulton Amateur Radio Club (FARC) offers instruction, support and testing for anyone interested in acquiring a Technician Class (entry level) FCC Amateur Radio License, as well as higher class licenses.
Amateur Radio, also known as Ham Radio, is a hobby that is accessible to almost anyone. Age, background, national citizenship, even physical disabilities are not barriers to passing the necessary tests to receive your own FCC amateur radio license and callsign..
You can earn an entry level Amateur Radio Technician license by passing a 35-question multiple-choice examination. No Morse code test is required. The exam covers basic regulations, operating practices, and elementary electronics theory, with a focus on VHF and UHF applications.
Self-study license guides are available under the “links” section of the FARC website, at http://www.fultonamateurradioclub.org/ An instructor is also available to answer questions via telephone, e-mail or in person, one-on-one, at a time and place mutually acceptable to the student and instructor. There is no fee for this service, though there is a small fee for the exam itself.
Questions regarding obtaining an Amateur Radio license may be directed to Redd Swindells, AI2N, at ai2n[at]twcny[dot]rr[dot]com
