100+ Years of Amateur Radio

at Penn

1909 - 2014

 

Amateur Radio, also known as ham radio, is a hobby that is best known for its role in providing emergency communications during disasters. While allowing the “ham” to serve the community during emergencies, Amateur Radio also serves as a vehicle to make new friends locally, nationally and globally.

Amateur Radio is established by international agreement and practiced by millions of enthusiasts all over the world. In the U.S. alone there are hundreds of thousands of citizens licensed as amateurs by the Federal Communications Commission after completing tests in theory and regulations.

Some Amateur Radio operators are attracted by the ability to communicate across the country, around the globe, or even with astronauts on space missions. Some like the convenience of a technology that gives them portable communication where no other communication is readily available. Others may like to build and experiment with electronics.
