Amateur Radio (ham radio) is a popular hobby and service that brings people together globally. People use radio to communicate across town, across the country, around the world, and into space using the “Air Waves”, satellites, repeaters and the internet. It’s fun, social, educational, and provides the ability to speak with fellow amateur operator’s globally thereby creating friendship’s and spreading international goodwill. It can be used as a lifeline during times of need and fosters good communication development for the Scout.
