Amateur radio operators are involved all over the world. We spend most of our free time talking to each other and learning from each other. Most of all we are there when we are needed during a desaster such as a Hurrican, Fires, Earthqucks, Floods and when you have no power we are prepared to comminicate with our battery operated radios that work off of car batterys.
We also help in communication for events like the NYC Marraton and other events from state to state.
This hobby is lots of fun and I have meet a lot of great people that have mentored me on this great habby and I have done the same to other's and that is what great about this hobby we are a big family.
If you are interested on becoming a Amateur Radio Operator let me tell you that you do not need to learn Morse Code, it's no longer required.
All you need to do is pass Technition test that is I think is 35 multilple choice question and it's easy.
