Welcome To The Ham Radio Live! Website
Our hobby is a fun, theoretical and practical hobby where every day can be different or you can discover something new or find something you didn't yet know.
It can be used for making contacts and new friends, locally, nationally, worldwide or even in space, using anything from small devices to very large or even dish-antenna's, using prebuilt or homebrew devices, filling the silent gaps while commuting or when feeling lonely and discuss anything technical with like-minded or 'elmering' new-comers to the hobby, sharing experiences
There can be something in it for everyone as you can use speech (either analog or digital), but if you might be mike-shy, you can use Morse code (which is an Intangible Cultural Heritage now), use SSTV to communicate using pictures or use the countless digital modes like FT8 - just contacting people without further communications - or the other way around with RTTY, PSK or similar modes, and 'talk' using tekst-messages that way - this can even be used for (communicating with) the hearing impaired. You can be part of emergency nets if required. In case of a natural disaster (like earthquakes, hurricanes) or technical issue (like emergency number being down or unreachable, big power outages), with amateur radio you'll be able to communicate and maybe even save lifes that way.
What about just be in the nature outside and activate parks or summits (mountain peaks) and make contacts from park to park, summit to summit or activate Islands. Or... Just having a casual chat from time to time...
It is all up to you!
