Ham radios are often considered the last resort of communication in the face of any cataclysmic disaster. And while many preppers prepare for the inevitable zombie apocalypse by gathering weapons and hoarding supplies, they often overlook the importance of keeping the lines of communication open. That’s why the Central Toronto Amateur Radio Club has decided to offer both survivalists and zombie fans a valuable course in Amateur Radio licensing next month!
The threat of a zombie pandemic, commonly known as a zombie apocalypse, is ever present in today’s world of widespread genetic engineering and frequent international travel. Fortunately, Amateur Radio can help minimize the impact of such a catastrophe and as such, the Central Toronto Amateur Radio Club will be offering an Amateur Radio licensing course starting May 1, 2013.
During the zombie apocalypse it’s likely that cellphones and the internet will quickly become useless, leaving Amateur Radio as one of the last reliable forms of communication. So, unless you’re incredibly good at sending smoke signals to neighboring communities, understanding and operating a ham radio will become an invaluable skill!
The ten-week course will meet every Wednesday evening and cover Amateur Radio basics, radio frequencies, regulations and safety. The registration deadline is April 25th, and space is limited. So visit the official Central Toronto Amateur Radio Club website for more details including a complete schedule, cost and location.
