Amateur Radio is a hobby of constructing, experimenting and communicating with radios. A licensed radio amateur can operate two-way radio equipment from almost anywhere, and can talk across town or around the world. The scope and possibilities are endless and would include, for example, experiments with home-built equipment or antennas, sending TV pictures, operating through satellites or just having a quiet chat with friends at home and abroad.
