Ham Radio Is Alive And Well in the USA

Unlike our Canadian experience where not only do we not know how many licensed (let alone active) Amateur Radio operators there are in this country, our cousins in the USA have hit new record high numbers.

Case in point were the 114 freshmen electrical engineering students at California Polytechnic State University who passed the US Technician exam on Nov. 4.

According to the ARRL this session was one of the largest exam groups ever. It was sponsored by the Cal Poly Amateur Radio Club which was founded in 1947.

What are clubs in Canada doing to help newcomers get their tickets?
