Event Description:

SATURDAYS,  03 FEBRUARY – 17 MARCH – University of Manitoba Amateur Radio Society (UMARS)

The University of Manitoba Amateur Radio Society (UMARS) is offering a seven session course and an exam to qualify for an amateur radio operator certification.

The material in this course is a high-level overview of communication systems, including antenna design, radio circuit design, and power radio transmitters. You can use an amateur radio certification for communicating with other amateurs worldwide, the international space station, and providing emergency services.

The course will take place Saturdays, 1-3pm, from February 3rd until March 17th.

The lectures will be taught by IEEE Canada President, Dr. Witold Kinsner. Each day will include a hands on demo or workshop at the end of the lecture. The total cost is $10 which includes membership in UMARS. Once the course begins there will be a chance to opt into purchasing a hand-held radio for a discounted rate of $30.

Note: This course is not through the University of Manitoba and is not for credit/grades but is an excellent opportunity to broaden your engineering skill sets.

The course is available to students and non-students from all faculties. Anyone who would like to participate can click here to fill out the registration form. Please contact for any questions/inquiries.
