The Art of Making a Contact By Radio
While "amateur" means "for love", many amateur radio operators approach the pastime and contributions of amateur radio with as much zeal and passion as their professional interests. It is more than a hobby. It's a world of continual discovery, knowledge, and friendships beyond compare. Lifetime friendships and knowledge that enhance careers, families, your community.
