    Registration is open for the Nashua Area Radio Society’s Fall Ham Bootcamp. Ham Bootcamp will be held online using Zoom web conferencing. This will let us reach out to new Hams across the country.

    Our 2022 Fall Ham Bootcamp will be held on Saturday, November 5th from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm Eastern Time. The morning session will focus on Technician level activities and the afternoon session will focus on HF activities for General and above licensees. Again, this year we will have breakout sessions in the afternoon where attendees can choose between 4 different sessions.

    Are you a newly licensed Technician, or a General or Extra and have never been on the air or built a station? Are you a prospective ham but would like to learn more about Amateur Radio activities? Ham Bootcamp is the program for you.

    Relay the signal! We will be able to handle anyone interested in attending. Since people need to register, we know in advance if we need to step up our Zoom capacity. Our biggest boot camp had around 480 people.

    Would you be interested sharing your syllabus and related materials? Would love to put something like this on for our local radio community.
    We have a lot of both ham and GMRS people who I think would eat this information up.
