Amateur Radio (ham radio) is a popular hobby and service that brings people, electronics and communication together. People use ham radio to communicate without the Internet or cell phones. It’s fun, social, educational, and since you can communicate from anywhere, it can be a lifeline during an emergency.

DC Ranch resident, DJ DiMarco who is an FCC-licensed Amateur Radio operator, will hold an introductory session on how to get an amateur radio license so residents can communicate with people across town, around the world or evenĀ on the International Space Station using radios. Registration closes April 11.
