What Can Amateur Radio
Ham radio operators use two-way radio stations from their homes, cars,
boats and outdoors to make hundreds of friends around town and around
the world. They communicate with each other using voice, computers,
and Morse code. Some hams bounce their signals off the upper regions
of the atmosphere, so they can talk with hams on the other side of the
world. Other hams use satellites. Many use hand-held radios that fit
in their pockets.
Hams exchange pictures of each other using television. Some also
like to work on electronic circuits, building their own radios and
antennas. A few pioneers in Amateur Radio have even contributed to
advances in technology that we all enjoy today. There are even
ham-astronauts who take radios with them on the International Space
Station and thrill thousands of hams on earth with a call from space!
