Lafayette Science Museum (LSM) with the support of Acadiana Amateur Radio Association (AARA) will be offering an 6-week ham radio course.

Class will be held every Tuesday at 5:30pm starting January 28, 2020 at the science museum on Jefferson Street in Lafayette. After the successful completion of the test the student will be awarded an FCC Technicians Class license for ham radio operation. This course is open to anyone and lasts 6 weeks.

LSM says that class size will be limited so those interested are asked to sign up early. Course material will be $20 and there is an FCC fee of $15 at the time of testing. LSM says they are offering this course as a way to promote ham radio to the youth of South Louisiana. This course is recommended for kids and adults 10 years and older.
