The Amateur Radio Service (Ham Radio) is a federally licensed and administrated radio service. Anyone, regardless of age, gender or physical ability can get a license. After successfully passing your exam you will be given a call sign. Once licensed, Ham Radio Operators use their radio stations (including computers, antennas, satellites and other equipment) to make contacts around the world from our homes, cars, boats and planes. Ham radio is one of the most exciting, friendly, useful, educational and high-tech hobbies around. Hams include a diverse group of people around the world -- engineers, scientists, doctors, astronauts, students, teachers, boaters, pilots, retirees and famous celebrities. You never know who you're going to talk to "on-the-air" next. We have resources here on this website to help you study for and take the required exam.
