Amateur Radio (ham radio) is a popular hobby and service that brings people, electronics and communication together. People use ham radio to talk across town, around the world, or even into space, all without the Internet or cell phones. It’s fun, social, educational, and can be a lifeline during times of need.

The Muscatine County ARES team is now sponsoring amateur radio license testing, as well. There will be a testing at 2 p.m. in the River City Promotions Office (1109 1st Avenue Muscatine). For more information, go to
