- What is Ham Radio?
- Who is the typical Ham?
- What is the appeal of Ham Radio?
- Why do you need a license?
- Why do they call themselves "Hams?"

For answers to these questions and more, visit the What is Ham Radio page.
Interested in Becoming an Amateur Radio Operator?
Getting your first Amateur Radio license "ticket" is as simple as passing a 35 question multiple choice exam. Exams are given by volunteer examiners that are licensed Amateur Radio Operators (Hams) themselves at different locations throughout the year. There are several great free resources out on the Internet to help you with passing the test. Some of those links are listed here for convenience. Remember, Morse Code is no longer a requirement, so you need only be able to pass the 35 question Technician license exam to get started.
The High Point session is on the last Saturday of the month at the American Red Cross High Point Chapter building located at 815 Phillips Avenue, High Point, NC 27262. Please contact Bob Williams, KB4TWG
For either session, you need to bring two forms of ID including a Photo ID and a photocopy of any previous licenses and/or CSCE's. The testing fee is $12.00 payable by cash or check. Other dates and locations can be found on the W4VEC web site.
