What is Amateur Radio?
Amateur Radio, also known as Ham Radio, is a FCC regulated radio service which aims to provide public service, technical training and experimentation, and is often used for communication between private persons. This is a non-commercial communications service.
Amateur Radio operators, commonly called hams. like to communicate with each other for fun. They can also provide communications for public events. In times of emergency they are quite often the first responders to disasters such as hurricanes, etc., providing essential communications.
You don't need a license to listen to ham bands but you are required by law to have one to transmit within a specified frequency spectrum based on your license level. Hams are licensed to operate radio transmitters by the FCC (Federal Communications Commission), and are assigned a call sign, such as our club call W7EK, which is registered in the FCC's universal licensing database.
If you want to know how to get a license please check out one of our meetings or feel free to contact us with any questions using our
