Ham Radio Explained, Sort Of

•, The Survivalist Blog
 Reports say applications for Amateur Radio (HAM) Licenses have skyrocketed in recent years (I wonder why!) and there’s been a lot of talk of using it for communications in a post Fan Event.

I’ve been a Ham operator, off and on, for the past fifty years and a NAVY Radioman for twenty of ‘em. There are so many different areas of interest within the hobby that it would take many books to cover them. There are “nets” where HAMs gather on the same frequency to talk about their favorite subjects or just B.S. late into the night. Some HAMs like to do nothing but make phone patches (*1) for ships at sea; others like to experiment with different antenna configurations or just like to see how much distance (DX) they can achieve.
