Why would I get into Ham Radio?

Ham radio is for anyone who would like to communicate with others via wireless or internet technology.

It is also for anyone who enjoys experimentation.

Licensed amateur radio operators communicate with each other in near by places, across the country, around the world and even with astronauts in outer space.

Amateur radio is a worldwide group of people who communicate with each other over a wide frequency spectrum using many different types of wireless transmitting modes.

Often, younger hams get a chance to meet other hams of various ages and professions. 

The frequent networking often helps young people when they are making career or education choices and wish to get some advice (from professionals in many technical fields) that maybe mum, dad or the careers advisor may not be able to give.
