One of our goals almost from the moment we got started with this project has been to earn our ham radio licenses, allowing us to use high-powered, 433 MHz transmitters for long-range FPV operations.
Well, say ‘Hello!’ to two of America’s newest – and biggest – hams: KF7TPQ (Techinstein) and KF7TPN (me). Actually, you can’t say ‘Hello’ because neither of us has a ham radio yet, but you get the idea.
A lot of credit for this accomplishment belongs to the great folks over at the Seaside Tsunami Amateur Radio Society. They offer free (yes, free!) classes for the aspiring ham at Clatsop Community College branch in Seaside, Oregon.
If you can work a pocket calculator and remain conscious for 12 hours of instruction over two days, you will get your license with the help of these wonderful people – I did!
