When cell phones, regular phones, the internet and other systems are down or overloaded, Amateur Radio still gets the message through.  Radio amateurs, often called “hams,” enjoy radio technology as a hobby. But it’s also a service –a vital service that has saved lives when regular communication systems failed.  Ham Radio is the ability to communicate — across the street, around the world, or even with people and satellites in space!  Even when the power’s out, and the land lines and cell phones don’t work, with a battery, a radio, and a wire, ham radio is there.

Ham Radio lets us enjoy life-long friends, and a hands-on technical education.  It provides the resources and encouragement to experiment with new things and to design and build on the latest communications technologies.
