Ham Radio

Saturday, September 02, 2006
Hello and welcome

Hi this site is is aimed at anyone who might be interested in amatuer radio. Amateur radio ''ham radio'' is a world wide hobbie which uses radio equipment to communicate with other ''hams'' local and world wide. To do this you need to obtain a radio licence which allows you to transmit radio signals on many different frequencies and modes. Frequencies are measured in megahertz and a mode is the type of transmission such as am, fm, ssb, cw, data, rtty, packet and many others.

You can talk or use morsecode or if you have a p.c connected to your radio you can transmit data or images even tv. To get licenced you can join a local radio club and sit a fairly simple exam and obtain a foundation licence, in the UK there are three licences foundation, intermediate and advanced. I currently hold an intermediate licence and have done for just over three years. If you would like to find your nearest club have a look at the radio society of great britain website at www.rsgb.org. The rsgb organise the exams and are very helpful, good luck.
