Getting Started in Amateur Radio
Explore Amateur Radio
Amateur Radio is a popular hobby and public service that combines people, electronics and communication together. You can use Amateur Radio to communicate 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.

Getting Involved
Although Amateur Radio operators get involved for many reasons, they all have in common a basic knowledge of radio technology and operating principles and pass an examination for the FCC license to operate on radio frequencies known as the "Amateur Bands." These bands are radio frequencies allocated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for use by amateur radio operators.
