Amateur Radio ? So if you have stumbled upon this website you might be thinking, "What is Amateur Radio all about then ?"Amateur radio is a popular technical hobby and can also be a volunteer public service.
But most of the time, it's about the most fun you can have with a radio. It's a way to talk with people around the world, or even orbiting the world; to send e-mail without any sort of internet connection and to keep in touch with friends across town, across the country or even across the world.
It is an incredibly diverse and very popular interest with over six million people involved worldwide.
