“HAM RADIO – Practical Insight” & Exhibition

Amateur radio (also called HAM Radio) describes the use of radio frequency spectrum for purposes of non-commercial exchange of messages, wireless experimentation, self-training, private recreation, radio sport, contesting and emergency communication. HAM Radio is a popular hobby and service that brings people, electronics and communication together. People use ham radio to talk across town, around the world, or even into space, all without the Internet or cell phones. It's fun, social, educational and can be a lifeline during times of need. You can set up a ham radio station anywhere! In a field... When cell phones, regular phones, the internet and other systems are down or overloaded, Amateur Radio still gets the message through. So, it's also a vital service that has saved lives when regular communication systems failed.
