Publisher's Summary

Why do we need ham?

The all new Amateur Radio Beginners Guide has up-to-date information to get the most out of your ham radio. It is all you need to get started with ham radio or amateur radio!

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 allows 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 and search and rescue operations in disaster situations where all communication networks are down. The beauty of ham radio is that it is independent of any resources, whether grid or Internet for operation.

Astronauts also communicate with Earth from space with ham radios. There are also multiple amateur radio satellites orbiting around the Earth which can be used for communication even as an entry-level ham radio operator. Packet radio is a digital mode which affords operators to send data through amateur radios just like the Internet.
