Cortes Island ESS -Ayami
The Cortes Island Emergency Support Services Team is canvassing the communities of Cortes Island regarding the interest in organizing training for Ham Radio certification. This training is ideally delivered through weekly (8-9 weeks duration) sessions involving small groups and would commence this coming fall. Each group meeting would be about 2 hours in duration. The course will be free to all participants. This training offering will only be offered if we receive sufficient interest by April 15, 2015.
Ham radio (also called amateur radio) is the use of designated radio frequency spectra for purposes of private recreation, non-commercial exchange of messages, wireless experimentation, self-training, and emergency communication.
If you are interested in taking this training, contact Ayami : Training Coordinator, Cortes Island ESS Program at 250-935-6908.
