About Amateur Radio

How I understand the goals

Radio amateurs practice communication by electromagnetic interaction to

  • have fun,
  • learn technical skills and knowledge about electronics and propagation,
  • improve operational skills concerning organization and procedures,
  • take care of the commons of the electromagnetic spectrum,
  • support their human fellows near and far in mutual understanding.

What I like most in amateur radio

  • Morse code transmission with simple and low-power equipment
  • analog modes where I am as close as possible to the radio waves
  • chatting with fellows, without intermediate networks
