Elmering Project

"Elmering or mentoring has long been the backbone of Amateur Radio. While technology constantly evolves, the human interaction between hams will not be replaced and will always remain one of the hobby's strongest traditions. As licensed hams we are all ambassadors of Amateur Radio and we should always be looking at ways in which we can welcome newly licensed hams and project a positive image that will attract others to ham radio."   Source: ARRL

The goal of the NCDXC Elmering Project is to get you on the HF bands doing something that you enjoy. We know that all of you may not be primarily interested in working DX so there is material on all phases of HF operation, station building, equipment selection and antennas woven into three tracks.

After a couple of introductory classes the tracks include Track I General License Exam Preparation, Track II HF Operating and Station Building and Track III Advanced Topics. Because the material is presented in tracks you can take only the classes that interest you. Our plan is to expose you to everything HF at your own skill level. There will even be a little material on how to chase DX thrown in for good measure.

Classes are free and we will do our best to make them fun. Some classes will be taught using Webex so you don't even have to leave your home to take them. Others will be taught at your Elmer's shack where you can try out what you are learning on the air. We look forward to helping you to enjoy HF ham
