2023 Training Program

The complete KCHEART Radio Operator online training program is provided below. To complete the training, click the link for each video. After you’ve watched the video, click the “Test” link to the right of each video link to take a quick, 10-question multiple-choice online test. You’ll see your results right away. Although the tests are scored automatically, there is currently no pass/fail criteria. The real test is how ready are you to take a position in any KCHEART-affiliated facility and contribute as a Radio Amateur. Results are being monitored by AEC Roxann Kosmicki, KZØIMO. Contact Roxann if you have any questions or observations.
