Why Ham radio??
I have struggled to explain what it is that first attracted me to ham radio and has held my fascination for over 40 years. Then I stumbled upon the best explanation on the website of a very good friend on mine. Since I cannot say it any better, I am reprinting it here:
|A friend asked "What is it about Ham
Radio that fascinates you?"
I thought for a second or two and then replied
"There's something about assembling your own station - your own "pile of
stuff" that you lovingly build or connect together, antennas that you
install, string up or whatever. You take your personal collection of
equipment, antennas and wires and through the magic of invisible magnetic
and electrical waves traveling through space, you somehow connect with
another human being, often thousands of miles away -- a kindred spirit,
who has also assembled his own personal "pile of stuff." There is a shared
joy in the accomplishment that is unmatchable by any other hobby."
