  1. This is really cool! Thanks for letting everyone know about this great opportunity. Ham radio groups are always looking to get more good people into the amateur radio world. Another great opportunity to earn your license – especially if you enjoy Sierra Nevada backcountry recreation – is the course that the Rubicon Trail Foundation puts on, including training specific to the Eldorado repeater system. This is from whom I earned my Technician’s License. More info can be found here:


  2. This is great and people should learn this skill!


  3. Ham radio clubs are always looking to train more people on radio communication and welcome them into the amateur radio hobby. Another great ham radio class (of which I am a proud graduate) is put on by the nonprofit organization Rubicon Trail Foundation. Theirs is a great class if your intended primary radio communications are for backcountry safety and want to use and understand the Sierra Nevada’s Rubicon Repeater system. Their class is free other than the $15 FCC license, and they offer terrific group-buy pricing on a couple different Yaesu radios through Ham Radio Outlet. Check it out:
