what is ham radio?

Amateur radio, often called Ham Radio, is both a hobby and a service in which participants, called "hams" use various types of radio communications equipment to communicate with other radio amateurs for public service, recreation and self-training.

Amateur radio operators enjoy personal (and often worldwide) wireless communications with each other and are able to support their communities with emergency and disaster communications if necessary.
