Interested in Ham Radio?

From the Amateur Radio Relay League web page:

"Here's your invitation to a friendly, high-tech hobby that's got something fun for everyone! You can become an Amateur Radio operator--no matter what age, gender or physical ability. People from all walks of life pass their entry-level exam and earn their Amateur (ham) Radio license. They all share the diverse world of activities you can explore with ham radio." 
Amateur radio, also known as "ham radio", is a hobby relating to two-way radio communications. It is a hobby that is enjoyed by many people around the world from all walks of life.
Whether you are interested in remote control models, an occasional chat with an astronaut in orbiting space, amateur television transmissions, bouncing signals off the moon back to another place on earth, a Friday night chat with friends and neighbors, or making contacts with other stations in faraway places, the hobby of amateur radio has something to offer everyone.  Amateur radio is a wide and diverse hobby and amateur radio enthusiasts, affectionately called "hams", can enjoy a variety of activities. Fox hunts (transmitter hunts), balloon launches, contests, making new friends through amateur radio, digital and satellite communications, building equipment or antennas, or even sending and receiving old fashioned Morse code, these are just a few of the many different aspects of the hobby. Each "ham" seems to develop their own favorite mode of communication.
