Ham Radio

"You are not in Kansas anymore, Toto."

Those were Dorothy's famous words when she discovered that she and her dog, Toto, were in a new territory.

Well, guess what, the same can be said about Ham Radio.


Because Ham radio has come a long long long way from its beginnings --

So long of a way that it has entered an exciting new technical era.

Yes, Hams still communicate by voice and morse code both locally and around the world.

But, many new innovations now allow communications by moon bounce and off meteor trails, through satellites, using computers and digital software, and much much more.

So much more that you will be amazed by the information in this interesting article which was sent to us by a friend of DIT.

If you haven't checked out Ham Radio (aka Amateur Radio) lately you need to.

And, who knows, after reading this you may finally understand that it is time for you to become a Ham!
