We look forward to serving you in 2012 with another Handiham Radio Camp. Thank you for your interest.
Dates for Radio Camp 2012 are Saturday, June 2 - Friday, June 8, 2012. This will be earlier than usual so that we can test for Extra under the existing question pool, which expires at the end of the last day of June.
For a camp application, please email Nancy at email@example.com. She will put your name on a list to receive an application packet when they are ready.

Emergency Preparedness specialist Col. Thomas Simonet to speak at Handiham affiliate meeting - public is invited
The most prepared man in America talks to amateur radio operators
Our Handiham-affiliated amateur radio club, the Stillwater Amateur Radio Association will be welcoming Colonel Thomas J. Simonet as a guest speaker. The topic for the May 10th program Emergency Preparedness, and Colonel Simonet is well-prepared. In fact, he has been called "the most prepared man in America".
Col. Simonet has had a lengthy and distinguished career with the Air Force, and is currently assigned as an Emergency Preparedness Liaison Officer for the State of MN. In that position, he coordinates with local communities emergency managers, FEMA, and the Department of Defense to evaluate the most effective assets available to aid local communities when their resources become overwhelmed.
This promises to be a very informative program for not only ham radio operators, but others as well. Being informed is an initial step in being prepared, so bring a friend and come join us for the May 10th meeting at 9 a.m.
Editor's note: If you live anywhere around the Twin Cities metropolitan area here in Minnesota or in western Wisconsin, this is a program that you shouldn't miss!
We are starting to get ready for our Summer Radio Camp, which is coming up in August. It is one solid week of Amateur Radio and, on the last day, VE's from a local club give exams to people wishing to take them.
Where else do you have a wheelchair-accessible pontoon boat with a 20 meter vertical, an Icom IC-718 transceiver and all of Lake George for the ground? They get out very well in case you didn't guess. Lake George is about 15 miles from Itasca State Park, The headwaters of the MIGHTY MISSISSIPPI, and they have field trips over there for radio campers who want to go.
Visit Courage Center's Handiham System while you are at Dayton HAMVENTION®. We will be at booth number 332-C, which is indoors not too far from the forum rooms.
HAMVENTION is the world's largest ham radio get-together, the place to meet your fellow amateur radio operators, learn about new technologies, and shop for new equipment. All of the "movers and shakers" in ham radio will be there, so it's fun, exciting, and a place to learn and grow.
Dates are May 16, 17, & 18, 2008.
