Done Any HamCram's Lately?

When I think about it, the biggest key to whatever success I’ve had as an ARES Emergency Coordinator has been driven by my group’s ability to rapidly and easily create new hams. Key to this are the “get your license in just one day!” HamCram events.

With a 90 percent “pass” rate, HamCrams won’t teach anyone about radio. But, they do enable us to quickly license people interested in our emergency program. This has worked especially well in getting Community Emergency Response Team members, first responders, emergency managers, and hospital staff licensed.

Once licensed, we then train the new hams in the basics of radio and go from there.

Looking around, most of our ARES responders were licensed though one of our HamCrams, which we do about 10 times-a-year here in San Joaquin County.

If you’d like to know more about HamCrams, visit sjham.com. If you want to know how to put one on, drop me a note

Regardless of how you do it, creating new hams is easier than getting old ones rejuvenated. And that can drive the success of your ARES program, the same as it is driving ours.
