Ham Radio for the Blind or Visually Impaired

You can be a ham radio operatorCourage Center’s Handiham System will get you started with your ham radio studies, and you’ll be on the air before you know it. Having fun with electronics, talking to your friends on the radio, and helping your community with emergency communications are some of the new experiences you can look forward to with a ham radio license.

Classes are available at various locations. Week-long Radio Camp sessions each year are available at Camp Courage on beautiful Cedar Lake, if you want to study in a residential camp setting. The cost of camp is based on ability to pay. Self-study is possible anytime and anywhere with audio or print materials, or on with your computer. Online courses are a self-paced member service, and are delivered as audio lectures each week: Beginner course (Technician Class License) Intermediate course (General Class License) Highest level course (Extra Class License) Operating Skills course (For those with any level of license who want to learn to operate better.)

There is also a Handiham World newsletter. (May 2013 edition) Find it online, delivered weekly in both text and audio, or as an audio podcast at, or call toll-free, 1.866.426.3442.
