Local and National Clubs

Where do I get more Information ?

The three best ways to learn about Amateur Radio are to listen to hams on the Amateur bands, read about Amateur Radio in the numerous books and magazines devoted to the subject, and, best of all, talk to hams face-to-face. Hams take pride in their ability to teach newcomers the ropes to get them started in the hobby. Most hams will welcome your interest.

To find out how to get started and who to contact in your area, call or write your local Amateur Radio club, or the national Amateur Radio society in your country. Canada's national society is the Radio Amateurs of/du Canada (RAC). The national society in the United States is the American Radio Relay League (ARRL). [More national societies are listed under the web pages referenced below].

Click on the appropriate item in the table below to find out more about local clubs in you area / Canada's national organization for hams / organizations in other countries. Note that many local clubs, and national societies, have their own web sites (site addresses are also provided in the references below).
