"Amateur Radio ?" - How does it work? Amateur Radio, so called "Ham Radio" is the ability to communicate with available or self built stations on legal assigned frequencies under strict rules. Communicating across the street, around the world, or even with people and satellites in space! Even when the power's out, and the land lines and cell phones don't work, with a battery, a radio, and a wire, ham radio is there. Ham Radio lets us enjoy life-long friends, and a hands-on technical education. It provides the resources and encouragement to experiment with new things and to design and build on the latest communications technologies. You can go anywhere you want, without boundaries, and amateur radio can help you get there! (part of text by Doug Lamb K4EK)
Radio amateurs, often called “hams,” enjoy radio technology as a hobby.
But it's also a service – a vital service that has saved lives when regular communication systems failed.
