Ham Radio, also known as Amateur Radio, is a great hobby -- fun for young and old. You can talk to other Hams all over the world or in your own State. I have talked to other Hams in Europe, Hawaii, Alaska, and all over the United States.
Ham Radio also is great resource in times of disasters, severe weather, and public events. Ham Radio has come to the aid of many communities in the past and also to the aid of the National Weather Service.
Ham Radio is easier to get into than ever. With the restructuring of Ham Radio you will be a Ham in no time. To learn more visit the ARRL Web Page.
