*Ham Radio Tech Class Being Offered at Lafayette Science Museum*

Lafayette Science Museum (LSM) with the support of Acadiana Amateur 
Radio Association (AARA) is offering a 6-week ham radio course every 
Tuesday at 5:30pm starting September 19^th , 2017 at LSM. After the 
successful completion of the test the student will be awarded an FCC 
Technicians Class license for ham radio operation. This course is open 
to anyone and lasts 6 weeks. However, class size is limited so please 
sign up early. Course material will be $20 and there is a FCC fee of $15 
at the time of testing.

Radio amateurs will discover a richly rewarding high-tech hobby that 
appeals to different people in a variety of ways. Whether it is the 
ability to talk to local friends over the radio waves using a hand-held 
transceiver (HT), communicating digitally with packet radio to exchange 
personal messages or vital information in an emergency, talking to other 
hamsanywhere in the world, or engaging in contests with other Radio 
Amateurs over the airwaves – there’s something for everyone.

LSM is offering this course as a way to promote ham radio to the youth 
of South Louisiana. This course is recommended for adults and kids 10 
years and older. Lafayette Science Museum is located at 433 Jefferson 
Street, Lafayette, LA.
