Amateur radio (also called ham radio) is the use of designated radio frequency spectra for purposes of private recreation, non-commercial
exchange of messages, wireless experimentation, self-training, and emergency communication. The term "amateur" is used to specify
persons interested in radio technique solely with a personal aim and without direct monetary or other similar reward, and to differentiate
it from commercial broadcasting, public safety (such as police and fire), or professional two-way radio services (such as maritime,
aviation, taxis, etc.). I must say 160 meters has been the band I use the most, you can find methere just about every nite when the
WX allows it. 1.950MHz is where I hangmy hat most of the time, but you can find me just about anywhere on the bandsI run some of the
digital modes mostly Digital SSTV
to name a few.
