The Ham Radio Resource Guide

Ham radio is wireless means of radio communication that has been popular since the early 1900s. Amateur radio operators, called hams, typically use voice transmissions to communicate with people all over the world. While voice is the most common means of communication, Morse code is still widely used and recent technological advances allow ham radio operators to transmit pictures over television. Ham radio is an enjoyable hobby, but it also serves an important role during national and international emergencies when other means of communication have been disrupted. A license from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is required to operate a ham radio.
