What can you do with Ham Radio? Today’s world is connected by complex forms of communications (cellular communication and internet). These forms of communication are very easy to use but rely on massive infrastructures between the two individuals communicating. If a cog in that wheel breaks, the whole system comes crashing down. Conversely, amateur radio relies only on the two parties involved. Just a few things are needed on either end to make things work. A power source, radio, antenna and a few other accessories depending on the desired mode of communications. Ham radio and the entire radio spectrum can be an indispensable tool in emergencies – large and small. Ham radio is a fun hobby that affords you to talk to other Ham radio operators locally and around the world. Depending on your license class, Ham radio is used for a wide variety of activities. It is also useful in emergencies, search and rescue operations in disaster situations where all communication networks are down.
