Electricity, Electronics, and Radio Merit Badges!

Merit Badge Opportunity

Earn your amateur radio license and the above Merit badges! Come and join in on the fun of amateur radio. This ten week class will give you the information you need to pass the FCC license exam. Boy Scouts can also earn three merit badges.

Amateur Radio, also known as Ham Radio,is an exciting hobby with many opportunities. Talk with friends across town or around the world. Enter contests to make as many contacts as possible in one weekend. Serve your community by becoming a severe weather spotter or by providing communications during special events. Build your own radio equipment and put it on the air. There is much that can be done with amateur radio, but first you must earn your license.

The Minnesota Youth Amateur Radio Council and the Pavek Museum have once again teamed up to offer a Technician Class License preparation course. The Technician class license is the entry level amateur radio license. Our ten week course is tailored to suit both youth and adults. Boy Scouts can also earn their Electricity, Electronics, and Radio merit badges as part of our class.
