Two things to help you and your family off of social media and into productive educational opportunities.
December 16 the Richmond County Amateur Radio Club will have a no charge amateur radio exam.
On December 19 the Facebook group Richmond County NC Amateur Astronomers will have Astronomy on the Square.
The amateur and amateur-satellite services are for qualified persons of any age who are interested in radio technique solely with a personal aim and without pecuniary interest, These services present an opportunity for self-training intercommunication, and technical investigations.
VECs coordinate the efforts of the Volunteer Examiners in preparing and administering amateur service operator license examinations. VECs are allowed to charge a fee for the exam. The Richmond County team joined the Laurel VEC and they chose not to charge any fee for the exam.
For information on how to study for the amateur radio exam and location see the information below.
